Worcester Art Museum
The Worcester Art Museum has hopes to attract more families, children, and millennials to the museum using interactive exhibits. Our project goal was to collect data on the effectiveness of various aspects of exhibit design for the WAM to use in future exhibits and to propose improvements for the current Medieval Gallery. We assessed the effectiveness of audience engagement of the Medieval Gallery and non- renovated exhibits. To do this, we created various data gathering tools such as observational rubrics and path tracking methods. After obtaining all of this information, the team designed and piloted a new digital media element to the medieval exhibit. Our work was completed through the Worcester Community Project Center with help from our Sponsor, Jeffrey Forgeng.
