Our dynamic arts programs and world-renowned museums serve as teaching tools for students and scholars, and as sources of enrichment for visitors of all ages.
The Emily Dickinson Museum in Amherst, Mass., today announced a major upgrade and expansion made possible by a $300,000 National Endowment for the Humanities grant, which will protect historic collections at the existing museum, and the purchase of an adjacent property that will eventually open even more of the poet’s Homestead to visitors.
The Common, the award-winning literary journal based at Amherst College, has received a $50,000 gift from Sally Wood, whose daughter and late husband attended Amherst. The gift supports student interns who show exceptional editorial promise and leadership skills.
An art exhibition serves as a jumping off point for faculty members in various fields—art history, political science, economics and sociology—to explore and discuss immigration and diversity.
