Our Project Sponsor: The WAM

Sponsor DescrptionThe Worcester Art Museum’s (WAM) purpose is to provide the community with formal and informal experiences with a wide range of educational and experiential programs. As a public, non-profit organization, the WAM is funded through their Business Partner Program, which includes sponsors such as Unum, AbbVie, Fallon Health, People’s United Bank, Rand-Whitney Container, Tufts Health Plan, and many more. There are also donors and members who contribute to WAM. It was founded in 1898 and since then has expanded its collection of paintings, sculptures, decorative arts to better serve Worcester and the broader regions nearby. There are other independent organizations in the Worcester community that have a similar goal statement, but do not directly compete with WAM such as the Worcester History Museum and EcoTarium. The WAM is hosting the upcoming exhibit, Reusable Universes, by the artist Shih Chieh Huang. Our sponsoring organization is structured in a way that there are multiple important divisions of leaders within its employees, but the sections that are specifically relevant to our project are the interactive art exhibitions.
