The Worcester Art Museum (WAM) is raising funds for the construction of a new addition to its building. This project reviews the need for the new addition and explores the use of 3D animation as a tool that may help WAM in raising the funds for its construction. Also, this project examines the museum's past fundraising drives and analyzes the influence of using Virtual Reality on different applications. It proposes the use of Virtual Reality to improve the functionality of the WAM's fundraising. Three-dimensional (3D) drawings and a prototype 3D fly-through animation of the animation were created, presented and given to the WAM.
