WORCESTER, MASS.- The Worcester Art Museum elected two new members to its Board of Trustees at its 125th annual Corporators meeting, held virtually on Wednesday, November 10. The newly elected trustees are Jennifer Davis Carey, executive director of the Worcester Education Collaborative and a resident of Worcester, and Lawrence H. Curtis, president and managing partner of WinnDevelopment and resident of Boxford. In addition to the business meeting, guest speaker Worcester City Manager, Edward M. Augustus Jr., gave his insights on Worcester’s cultural vibrancy and how the city has remained strong throughout COVID. He also emphasized the importance of arts in our local community.

The over 150 attendees who joined the Zoom meeting heard Board President Dorothy Chen-Courtin discuss the challenges and successes of the Museum in this past year of unprecedented pandemic restrictions. The continued impact of COVID-19 on operations and public programming did not overshadow the positive news—from exhibition openings that garnered national and international press, to new acquisitions that diversified the Museum’s collection, to WAM being a place of comfort and connection through art during these challenging times.

“Through it all, the Worcester Art Museum continued to be a cultural anchor for our City – and beyond,” said Dorothy Chen-Courtin. “During the winter while museums in Boston were closed, WAM was a respite from the pandemic and a destination for cultural nourishment and engagement.”

The Museum finished the year with a small net operating surplus of $68,473. Operating revenue for the year was $9,183,902, with $8,995,429 in expenses. An additional $120,000 was spent on capital improvements.

Casey of Natick, MA; Rodmia Cesar of Leominster, MA; Donna E.Cohen of Westwood, MA; Sandra Connell Sanders of Worcester, MA; Joshua Croke of Worcester, MA; Jennifer Davis Carey of Worcester, MA; Paul M.
