The Wilmington Art Association is an all-volunteer organization founded over 50 years ago and dedicated to supporting arts and artists in the area through outreach efforts and scholarships. The WAA is a 501(c)(3) Non-Profit Corporation as defined in the IRS Code.

The WAA provides opportunities for area visual artists to gain community recognition through shows and exhibitions. It offers a forum wherein artists, local craftsmen, and people interested in the visual arts can exchange ideas, learn from each other, and contribute to the community. It provides educational programs, demonstrations, and lectures, which will lead to better public understanding and appreciation of visual arts.
