Student Guide Tour: Intimacy in Art, with Maeve Miller

Five people stand around a large painting hanging on the wall in the corner of a gallery.  The painting, in a thick gold frame, shows three men relaxing around a watering hole surrounded by trees. One of the men holds a man’s hand to help him get out of the water. The other man is leaning against a birch tree. There are two other smaller paintings also visible in the gallery on either side of the group of visitors.

The Ho Family Student Guide Program at the Harvard Art Museums trains students to develop original, research-based tours of the collections. These tours, designed and led by Harvard undergraduates from a range of academic disciplines, focus on objects chosen by each Student Guide and offer a unique, thematic view into the collections.

This program is supported by the Ho Family Student Guide Fund.
