Every purchase supports the Museum's mission to empower lifelong curiosity and connection to the natural world through the art of Walter Anderson and kindred artists.
WAMA's limited edition ornament features Walter Anderson's "Zinnia" from the ceiling of his Little Room.
The Little Room served as Walter Anderson’s sanctuary on the mainland during the latter years of his life. When he could, Anderson would spend his time on Horn Island, but he still had obligations on the mainland. To mentally transport himself to Horn Island, Walter Anderson painted the Little Room to portray life and time on the island. Known as “Creation at Sunrise,” these floor-to-ceiling murals chronicle the transition from night to day through the synthesis of plants, animals, and brilliant colors.
