Welcome to WAM Updates

WAM Updates are short, informal posts that put the spotlight on small, but exciting, Museum-related projects, such as the addition of a new painting or sculpture to a gallery. They also serve as updates on staff, new services or programs, and other WAM news.

Academic Collaboratives at WAM

In addition to curating the Higgins Collection of Arms and Armor, I’ve been teaching in the Humanities Department at Worcester Polytechnic Institute for the past decade and a half, so I’m especially happy to announce the launch of WAM’s new Academic Collaboratives webpage. The museum has long been a destination for both professors and students, and now their work with the WAM collection has a home on the Academic Collaboratives at the Worcester Art Museum page. Check out the multimedia tour of the galleries by Holy Cross students, what Worcester State physicists learned about our Niccolò di Bartolomeo Pisano from infrared radiation, and the Virtual Joust by a team of WPI game designers!
