WCMA is a vibrant hub for learning and participation.

We believe in taking risks and testing creative, future forms of scholarship and teaching. We leverage our intimate size, college setting, and interdisciplinary context to generate experimental, hands-on learning experiences.


We look forward to welcoming Pamela Franks in September 2018 as the new Class of 1956 Director
