AWoL Mentorship Program

Art Without Limits and The Wildling Museum

Gallery events and exhibitions, highlighting the art of AWoL Emerging Artists, are an integral part of the AWoL Mentorship Program. All that is entailed in preparing and presenting artwork for an exhibition is a significant element of an artist’s growth and success. It is also an opportunity for Emerging Artists to present their artwork to the community and for art lovers, artists, and donors to become more familiar with the successful AWoL Mentorship Program.
