Abstract

The Worcester Art Museum (WAM) is undergoing a culture change. Contrasting the traditional visitor experience consisting of linearly walking through the galleries, the WAM strives to create areas where patrons feel welcome to linger and socialize. By conducting research of community spaces and gathering opinions of WAM staff and visitors, we formulated our recommendations. We delivered physical renderings of how certain rooms could be designed to be more communal, and specific ideas for events to gain interest from the community.
