Wiregrass Museum of Art

Southern Alabama



Sitting on a quiet street in Dothan, Alabama, is a quaint brick building, home to the Wiregrass Museum of Art. The building, constructed in 1912 as a water and electric building, was repurposed in 1987 as the town’s sole arts museum. It boasts a sprawling, 18,000 square-foot gallery along with a conference center, perfect for wedding-day festivities. The gallery space features an impressive collection of artwork, including American, fine decorative, and design arts, spanning the early 20th century to the present. On a fine, warm summer afternoon, you can host a simple ceremony on the lawn adjacent to the museum under the vast blue sky with the rustic brick as a backdrop. Afterwards, you and your guests can enjoy a cocktail hour as you wander the museum’s galleries. For the reception, cater at the conference center as you continue to enjoy the museum’s collection, or take a pleasant walk downtown, where you’ll find an abundance of restaurants. Whether you’re an art connoisseur, an appreciator, or simply want something unique, the Wiregrass Museum will give you a memorable venue for your special day.
