Williams College Museum of Art

We’re working with WCMA to develop digital tools that enhance exploration and enrichment of the collections data.

WCMA is an art museum located on the Williams College campus in Massachusetts. WCMA has been dedicated to open access and released their first open dataset a little over a year ago. We built an API for the museum which pulls together all of their collections data, including events and classes, from different databases in a variety of formats. The API made it possible for others to experiment with the data and create visualizations of their own.
