Williams College Museum of Art reopens to the public on Friday, July 30, with daily hours of 11 a.m.–5 p.m. through Labor Day (Monday, September 6, 2021). On September 7, our academic year schedule begins, and the museum will be open six days a week from 10–5, 10–8 Thursdays, closed Mondays. We cannot wait to welcome you back!
From July 30 through August 15, we are delighted to present Art, Sport, and Propaganda: 1972 Munich Olympics, an exhibition organized by Elissa Watters, MA ’18, and delayed a year along with the 2020 Olympic Games. Coming later this summer to the upper galleries are three new exhibitions. Remixing the Hall: WCMA’s Collection in Perpetual Transition, organized by Horace D. Ballard, Kevin M. Murphy, and Elizabeth Sandoval, brings together objects from across our global collection into thematic groupings that center our common humanity. Sweaty Concepts, a collection-based exhibition of contemporary art organized by Lisa Dorin, brings feminisms to the fore. And the Weston Rotunda is transformed by artist Kameelah Janan Rasheed’s Worshipping at the Altar of Certainty, an installation that probes the Lawrence Hall building’s history as a library and challenges the idea of a center of knowledge.
We hope to see you soon!
