“As we approach the 40th anniversary of the Muscarelle Museum in 2023, we look forward to honoring the founding leaders who brought the museum into existence. With our planned renewal, made possible by the generous lead gift of Martha Wren Briggs ’55, we will position the museum for another forty years of cultural impact at William & Mary.”
