Thanks to an IMLS CARES Act Grant award of $200,000, the Weisman is reimagining existing museum programs, building upon past processes, and co-creating new operational processes and programming. We hope that by conducting deep internal reviews of the ways we work, the accessibility of our spaces, and how we approach program creation, we will grow as we learn.
Interested in the role of art and museums in social change? Want to learn from museum professionals and artists? Join the WAM Collective! We're now accepting applications to join the Weisman's student group through September 17, 2021.
The national search for WAM's new director is relaunched. A search committee has been convened by the Executive Vice President and Provost, continuing a process that was paused in 2020 in the early months of the pandemic.
Over the past year, the museum field has reckoned with major societal challenges: the COVID-19 pandemic; the ongoing civil rights movement for racial justice; and renewed calls for repatriation of art and cultural materials. With this in mind, WAM Collective and other emerging museum practitioners were asked to chart a path for a new kind of museum.
