AAA Editor Notes

Worcester Art Museum, 55 Salisbury St., chronicles the history of human creativity spanning 5,000 years through ancient sculpture, mosaics, impressionist paintings and contemporary art. Included are works by Cassatt, Gauguin, de Goya, Monet, Sargent and Whistler. First opened in 1898, the museum features 35 galleries and houses more than 35,000 works. Paintings spanning the 13th through the 20th centuries are on display, along with decorative arts, sculptures, photographs, prints and drawings. In 2014 the museum premiered a new exhibit featuring antique weapons and armor—from Renaissance Europe to feudal Japan—culled from the collection of Worcester's defunct Higgins Armory Museum.
