A perfectly symmetrical view of a glass roof from below is at the center of the image. Multiple floors of the building, which are visible as rectangles in ascending sizes frame the roof. The border of the image shows repeating archways made of stone. The sky through the glass roof is light blue.

Franklin Hang ’21 explores how artistic periods and traditions have had an impact on the world in ways that exceed bodily limitations. He will lead an interactive discussion of a portrait of George Washington by Gilbert Stuart, Emperor Napoleon I by Jacques-Louis David, Standing Buddha from 7th- to 8th-century Thailand, and the painting Ezterab by Charles Hossein Zenderoudi.

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.
