Does W&TW rent its facilities for private events?
    We typically do not rent our gallery as an event venue. Our gallery layout changes every 6 weeks for art exhibitions that use the space in unpredictable ways. Because we can’t guarantee the safety of the artwork, or that there will be room for an event, we unfortunately cannot offer our space as a venue.
Are there job, internship, or volunteer opportunities?
    Currently we are not hiring for any paid positions.
    We do offer a number of internships and volunteer opportunities. Visit our Volunteer page to learn more about current opportunities.
