Worcester Art Museum Names Weir Director of Education & Experience

Thursday, August 16, 2018

 

Marnie Weir

The Worcester Art Museum (WAM) announced that Marnie Weir has been named the Director of Education and Experience.

“Science agrees that we learn best when engaged both intellectually and emotionally with materials, ideas, and people. Throughout my career, I have committed myself to the work of strengthening museums' roles as public institutions. This commitment is bolstered by a fervent belief that education, art, and the humanities are mutually affirming sparks needed to foster interactive learning that inspires discourse and community. I have witnessed firsthand the incredible cultural assets of Worcester, and look forward to applying my experience in museum education toward the success of this great institution,” said Weir. 

Weir will begin work at the Museum on October 22. She replaces Marcia Lagerwey, PhD, who is moving into a part-time role after more than 30 years in Education and Audience Engagement at WAM.

About Weir

Weir comes to the Worcester Art Museum from The Cathedral Church of St. John the Divine in New York City.

There, she most recently held the position of Director of Public Education and Visitor Services.

Weir received a Master of Science degree in Museum Education from Bank Street College of Education and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Art History from Hobart & William Smith Colleges. She also serves as a member of the Board of Trustees at the Cuttyhunk Historical Society and Museum of the Elizabeth Islands.
