WARM Links


Women's Art Registry of Minnesota



WARM seeks through the arts to make women's voices and visions significant influences in our community and society. We provide audiences and communities with opportunities to experience and value women's contributions to the visual arts through exhibitions and education. WARM encourages women artists to form a web of support to provide opportunities in exhibition, networking, mentoring and education to assist each other in achieving their personal and professional goals. WARM is a resource for women artists nationally and internationally to realize their potential through organizing.
