Speaker: Jeffrey Forgeng (Higgins Curator of Arms and Armor and Medieval Art, Worcester Art Museum) 

The long-anticipated opening of our expansive 5,000-square-foot galleries is coming soon, and construction on the new space is well underway. Using innovative open-storage display methods, the immersive new galleries will display upwards of 1,000 arms and armor objects beginning in late 2025. During this special preview, curator Jeffrey Forgeng will offer a first glimpse at the new galleries through renderings, photos, and behind-the-scenes stories.
