What is the WAM Collective Officer group?

WAM Collective Officers are the student leadership team of the Weisman Art Museum. Officers learn about contemporary museum practice, plan programs and events, and make connections between their studies and the museum’s resources. Officers work with professional museum staff, artists, advocates, and community members on projects that reflect the concerns, interests, and passions of the student perspective. 

Applications to become a WAM Collective Officer is open to any UMN student, regardless of area of study. Officers of the Collective may arrange to be part of the program for academic credit through their parent institution, through the UROP program or for independent study.

WAM Collective meets every Wednesday from 3:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. at WAM. Additionally, Collective officers spend time outside of meetings hosting events, doing behind the scenes work, taking field trips, and learning about the museum field. Acceptance into the WAM Collective is a year-long commitment with the opportunity to renew involvement at the end of each academic year.

Applications are now closed for the 2019-20 academic year. Stay tuned for future openings.
