    Historic Deerfield

    Rococo: Celebrating 18th-Century Design and Decoration

    Historic Deerfield

    Rococo: Celebrating 18th-Century Design and Decoration
    This year marks the 300th anniversary of the birth of Thomas Chippendale (1718 - 1779), English furniture maker, author of The Gentleman and Cabinet-Maker's Director (1754), and important disseminator of what is commonly known as the Rococo style. This exhibit celebrates both Chippendale's legacy and the iconic style he helped promote through a number of English and American Rococo decorative art forms from Historic Deerfield's rich collection.

    "The Field is the World:" Williams, Hawai'i, and Materials Histories

    Williams College Museum of Art

    "The Field is the World:" Williams, Hawai'i, and Materials Histories
    This exhibition offers a meditation on how practices of collecting and display have been wielded to impose intellectual, moral, or spiritual order upon the world, inspired by a Hawaiian "kupe'e" displayed at Williams during the nineteenth century.

    Kay Sage: Serene Surrealist

    Williams College Museum of Art

    Kay Sage: Serene Surrealist
    Kay Sage: Serene Surrealist recreates the American artist's inaugural 1950 exhibition with the Catherine Viviano Gallery in New York. One of the few women Surrealists, Kay Sage (1898 - 1963) achieved notable success during her career.

    Anicka Yi: Our Love Is Bigger Than an AIDS Quilt

    Williams College Museum of Art

    Anicka Yi: Our Love Is Bigger Than an AIDS Quilt
    On view for the first time at WCMA, this installation by Anicka Yi immerses visitors in a sensorial experience. At its center, a large, illuminated dish contains hair gel with hundreds of cosmetic contact lenses pinned to its undulating surface, as a mentholated scent pervades the room. In her distinctive use of unconventional and often ephemeral materials, Yi's work reorders the cultural forces that privilege containment over leakage, clarity over ambiguity, and ocularity above other senses.

  • Diana Al-Hadid: Delirious Matter

    Today

    10:00 AM EST

    Williams College Museum of Art

    Diana Al-Hadid: Delirious Matter

    Williams College Museum of Art

    Diana Al-Hadid: Delirious Matter
    In her first major public art project, Diana Al-Hadid combines aluminum, steel, fiberglass, concrete, polymer modified gypsum, and pigment in four sculptures installed across the Williams campus. Al-Hadid is best known for creating ghostly white sculptures that pivot among architectural ruin, figuration, and abstraction. Delirious Matter conjures architecture that evokes archaeological remains, human figures that seep into cascading forms, and expanses that hover between interior and exterior.

About The Area

Known as the Bay State, Massachusetts is renowned for its beaches in the summer months, ski hills in the winter and classic New England charm year around. It's steeped in colonial American history, from the city of Salem, where the famed witch trials took place, to Plymouth, where the first pilgrims entered the New World.

From the Boston metropolis to the sleepy New England towns, there’s many fun things to do in Massachusetts. Kids and adults alike will have a blast at the Edaville Family Theme Park in Carver, or visiting the Amazing World of Dr. Seuss Museum in Springfield.

Whether in Boston or on Cape Cod, Massachusetts is famous for its seafood. Head to the No Name Restaurant for a succulent lobster dinner, or the Sailing Cow Café for award-winning clam chowder. For stunning foliage, be sure to visit during the autumn months and watch the trees turn vibrant shades of gold, red, and orange.
