The McNeil Program for Studies in American Art promotes scholarship in American art and architecture at Wellesley College through a broad range of curricular and extracurricular initiatives.

The program supports lectures, panel discussions, film series, museum and site visits, faculty and student projects, and student internships. McNeil Programs typically relate closely to one or more of the program’s themes: Arts of the Americas; New England Arts & Architecture; and American Art in a Global Context. 

Students with an interest in developing or participating in programs related to any of these themes should contact: Alice T. Friedman, Grace Slack McNeil Professor of American Art or Martha J. McNamara, Director New England Arts & Architecture Program. Students interested in summer or in-term internships at museums, historical societies, or other art and architecture related nonprofit organizations in the New England area should contact Professor McNamara.
