Whiskey Run 2021

Join us for a virtual walk / run to support education and art programming at the Gertrude Herbert Institute of Art. 

Covid-19 forced the Institute to close its doors and cancel many events, including the annual Whiskey at Ware fundraiser. So we did what we do best, we got creative and will be holding the first annual virtual Whiskey Run with the plans do it in person the next year as part of Whiskey at Ware. By joining us the week of May 23 - May 31, you are helping to support our mission to provide opportunities for visual arts education and to develop visual arts awareness and appreciation throughout the greater Augusta community.
