Museum Visual Diary by Jenny Tang

The beginning of the school year signals the end of sweltering summer days and the return of backpacks, notebooks and freshly sharpened number 2 pencils. For me, it means leaving the crowded subways and long nights of my summer internship at Art.sy in New York for Williamstown, MA, where I’m reminded that rivers and trees are things that can exist outside of Central Park. And the best part of returning to school is coming back to WCMA — most importantly, to the community of people who call the museum their home, whether student, staff, or longterm local. These photos are a visual diary of the first two months of my senior year at Williams.

What makes WCMA special?

 

New England fall! Its real!

Besides our spectacular surroundings (the Green River is a mere five minute walk from the museum), we are a space for gathering, for performing, for working.

The faithful disciples, sharpening some yellow lead for the grid.

I can’t think of any place I’d rather be.
