Franklin Hang ’21 will present his tour “Transcendence—A Guide on How to Escape Your Current Reality.” Looking closely at three objects from the Harvard Art Museums collections, Hang will explore how artistic periods and traditions have had an impact on the world in ways that exceed bodily limitations.

This free tour will take place online via Zoom. To join, click the following link: (no pre-registration required).

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.
