WAAM Regional: Spirit of Woodstock is a survey of contemporary work by regional artists that explores the continuing legacy of the spiritual, cultural, political and social changes of the 1960s.

WAAM welcomes a range of styles and mediums influenced by this landmark era in Woodstock that continues to have a profound impact on artmaking in the region today. Everything from abstract art to socially engaged practices will be considered to the extent that it reflects the
boundary-pushing culture of the time.
