    Robert Rauschenberg: Autobiography

    Williams College Museum of Art

    Robert Rauschenberg: Autobiography
    With Rauschenberg's monumental print, "Autobiography.", as the point of departure, this exhibition combines archival documents and original works of art that speak to the ways in which he both found and inserted himself in the world.

    Accession Number
    Between 1960 and 1962, WCMA acquired 396 works of art. As with all objects that enter the collection, the museum assigned them a code when they arrived called an accession number that recorded both the year and the sequence of their acquisition. Using accession numbers as a display strategy, Accession Number poses different questions: What did the museum prioritize, why, and what did it overlook? Which works of arts are still valued today?

  • The Anxiety of Influence: European and American Art, 1689-1913

    The Anxiety of Influence: European and American Art, 1689-1913

    Williams College Museum of Art

    The Anxiety of Influence: European and American Art, 1689-1913
    Bracketed by the earliest war for control of North American and World War I, The Anxiety of Influence highlights seldom-seen treasures from WCMA's collection and illuminates the political, economic, and cultural tensions of the times. Works from Britain, France, Holland, Italy, and Spain are juxtaposed with those created in the Americas. Complex relationships--harmonious and contentious--mark the artistic exchange between Europe and America.

  • Lex and Love: Meleko Mokgosi

    9:00 AM EST

    Lex and Love: Meleko Mokgosi

    Williams College Museum of Art

    Lex and Love: Meleko Mokgosi
    In two new chapters in his Democratic Institution project, Meleko Mokgosi (Botswana, b. 1981), Williams '07, investigates the irresolvable contradiction that is democracy. Presented together for the first time at WCMA, Lex and Love considers the daily experiences of the diverse populations that occupy southern Africa.

    Check out an activity and linger on the patio. Enjoy a book from People's Library, lounge on the grass and play a hand of cards, challenge a friend to a game of bean bag toss, send some snail mail, or test your balance with a game of Jenga. Stop by the main entryway anytime during the museum's open hours to choose a bag and borrow it for an hour or an afternoon.

About The Area

Nicknamed the Bay State, Massachusetts is renowned for its beaches in the summer months, ski hills in the winter and classic New England charm year around. It's steeped in colonial American history, from the city of Salem, where the famed witch trials took place, to Plymouth, where the first pilgrims entered the New World.

Massachusetts isn't all schoolroom history, although many would like you to think it is with its abundance of universities and prep schools. This state boasts a lot of diversity, making it a center for all kinds of varied cultural experiences. From small, storybook towns to the Boston metropolis, Massachusetts should be on the top of your travel list.
