“At the end of the nineteenth century, as photography evolved from a documentary medium to a creative endeavor in the United States, the City of Worcester witnessed the changes with interest. From its foundation, the Worcester Art Museum played an important role in the process. The institution progressed, in phases, from supportive host, to a leader in the collecting, presentation, and interpretation of creative photography in New England.” (Jareckie, 9)
