The Williams College Museum of Art (WCMA) will host an opening celebration at 5 p.m. Thursday, June 20, to officially launch WCMA Summer Space, a gallery and shop space on Spring Street.
Summer Space, which opened on Monday, June 3, at 76 Spring St., is a place to experience art and community while the museum’s permanent home in Lawrence Hall is closed for renovations through Sept. 5. Open daily from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. through Sept. 2, and free of charge, Summer Space is a place for visitors to gather, shop and sip a cold beverage while surrounded by works from the WALLS collection, a special collection of original artworks that go on loan to Williams students every semester.
The opening celebration will include complimentary food and drinks, live music and the opportunity to make and take home a free button featuring one of the WALLS works on display.
The main WCMA galleries in Lawrence Hall will reopen Friday, Sept. 6, with an exciting lineup featuring Axis Mundo: Queer Networks in Chicano L.A., a critically acclaimed exhibition co-curated by Williams College professor C. Ondine Chavoya.
The opening celebration is free and open to the public.
