How a Gift of Art Supports Teaching at Williams

We are an active, collecting museum. Here, works of art don’t languish in storage; they flourish.

The Williams College Museum of Art is committed to expanding its collection with works of art that support the museum’s teaching mission to ensure that all students have personal encounters with art as part of their Williams experience. The collection’s breadth provides inspiration for faculty members who integrate works of art across time and cultures into their curriculum. Teaching with works from the collection provides a basis for critical thought and creativity and fosters a global perspective that impacts the way that students think about and view the world around them.

A special classroom designed for teaching with the collection supports teaching for over 55 courses. While 350 objects are on view in the galleries, more than 2,000 artworks are used for teaching in this classroom each year. In addition, over 50,000 visitors come to the museum from the college, the surrounding community, and around the world annually. Every year, more than 14,000 individuals attend education programs such as artist’s talks, lectures, performances, tours, and class sessions in the galleries.
