Worcester Art Museum Receives $4 Million Contribution

The Worcester Art Museum, in Massachusetts, which is in the process of recasting itself as more than a small imitator of its grander neighbors, has received $4 million to eliminate some of its daily costs and create some room for growth.
The donation, from the Myles and C. Jean McDonough Foundation, is one of seven from the foundation totaling $15.25 million for Worcester-area cultural institutions, such as the American Antiquarian Society and the Tower Hill Botanic Garden. Ms. McDonough has a long history with the museum, as a docent and member of its board.
The Worcester Art Museum, which was founded in 1896, has a collection of 38,000 works and an endowment of about $20 million to buy art.
