The Worcester Art Museums, a major museum of contemporary art, will open its doors on Nov 1, a museum official announced today.
The museum will hold its opening on a beautiful, sun-dappled morning in the city’s historic Fenway Park, with a view of the skyline, at the corner of South Street and Broadway.
The opening will be followed by a program of exhibitions by renowned contemporary artists.
The first exhibit is called “Tall Tale,” which was exhibited last summer at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.
“It’s been a year of exciting and transformative experiences for us here at the Worcester Art Musicians,” said Peter Wigdor, the museum’s executive director.
“I hope that this new chapter will bring you a renewed sense of hope and energy.”
The Worcester Art Works, the oldest in the country, opened in 1909 and has been a major attraction for generations of residents, who call it home.
Worcester Art Museets have grown from a small art gallery on the edge of the city into an arts and crafts museum with a strong program of contemporary artists, a food truck, a theater and a performance space.
Woburn Art Works is a museum that is home to the world-famous and acclaimed art of the Boston-area.
It is located in a quiet neighborhood just a few miles from the University of Massachusetts, Worcester.
The museum has been recognized for its unique collection of works by some of the most celebrated artists of the last century.
The Massachusetts Museum of Fine Arts and the Worcester Arts Commission have donated the Worcester Museum to the Worcester Regional Arts Partnership for its expansion and future development.
It will also be housed at the Charles River Arts Partnership in the new community.
The Worcester Museum of Art opened in 1910.
The opening is the second in the Worcester art history.
In 2006, the Worcester Historical Society announced that the museum had been selected as a historic landmark in Massachusetts for the fourth consecutive year.
