WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. The Williams College Museum of Art (WCMA) will host a summer program series on three Tuesdays this July in the exhibition SO–IL \ WCMA: Building a New Museum. 
Visitors can learn about the plans for the new WCMA, get a behind-the-scenes look at what the museum has in store for the new building, and offer their own thoughts about the future of WCMA.
Each program will begin at 5 p.m. and will be followed by a patio party at 6 p.m.
The series kicks off on Tuesday July 9, with EDU 101: Exploring Education. WCMA's engagement curators will discuss how they are imagining education in the new museum in an informal setting with activities and demonstrations beginning at 5 p.m. At 6 p.m., move outside for a celebratory after-school patio party with ice cream and art-making projects for kids and drinks for the adults.
Summer School continues Tuesday, July 16, with ARTH 101: Preparing Collections. Collection curators Kevin Murphy and Elizabeth Sandoval will share and discuss four artworks as they demonstrate the close-looking techniques they use in the collection assessment currently under way at WCMA. During the session, which begins at 5 p.m., they will touch on issues surrounding the artworks, including provenance, conservation goals, and research opportunities. At 6 p.m., move outside for a celebratory after-school patio party with drinks, snacks, and an interactive activity exploring our collection.
The series concludes Tuesday, July 23, with ECO 101: Celebrating Sustainability. You will have the chance to chat directly with WCMA staff and project architects about the many ways our new museum prioritizes sustainability. From 5 to 6 p.m., visitors can drop into the SO-IL \ WCMA: Building a New Museum exhibition to discuss the future in an informal setting. At 6 p.m., move outside for a celebratory after-school patio party with snacks, drinks, and an art-making activity.
