WALLS Williams Art Loan for Living Spaces Fall 2014

Unlike any other group of artworks at the Williams College Museum of Art the destiny and purpose of the WALLS collection is to leave the museum’s walls and to enter into the living spaces and bustling lives of Williams students. In February 2014 WCMA launched the new WALLS (Williams Art Loan for Living Spaces) program. Students lined up in the bitter cold and snow for a chance to have an original artwork in their daily life for an entire semester. This September students will again line up to choose one of 90 works to install in their room.

WCMA launches WALLS Williams Art Loan for Living Spaces

Living with an original artwork is something that few people experience. This February, Williams students will have the chance to develop deep and memorable experiences with an artwork over an entire semester when they borrow a work from the Williams College Museum of Art (WCMA). The museum is launching WALLS (Williams Art Loan for Living Spaces), a new program that invites students to take an original artwork out on loan from a collection dedicated to this purpose. The art will become part of the stories that students tell about themselves and their college experience at Williams.
