Not Your Typical Tour Guides

Undergraduate student guides from diverse backgrounds and perspectives provide one-of-a-kind tours for visitors to the Harvard Art Museums.

Transformative Education

Students in a Harvard class about artist materials and methods received a crash course in artistic expression.

Choreography and Conversation

Karole Armitage celebrated the Everywhen exhibition by presenting a dance in the Calderwood Courtyard; afterward, she spoke about her craft with WBUR’s Lisa Mullins.

Sounding Art in the Courtyard

Last fall, seven Harvard undergraduates in Professor Richard Beaudoin’s course on music composition took on an exciting assignment: to compose short works inspired by art from the Harvard Art Museums collections.

Student Ambassadors

While the museums have been undergoing renovation, our staff have been working hard to strengthen connections between students and the Harvard Art Museums, developing programs that will more fully integrate the museums into intellectual life on campus.

Come See Us at the Student Activities Fair

This Friday, September 6, the Harvard Art Museums will be joining hundreds of student organizations, club sports, and university offices for the annual Harvard College Student Activities Fair.
