It’s right at Tufts – no excuse for not checking this great event out!
On Sunday, March 11, at 3pm, the Tufts Art Gallery is organizing a walkthrough of Nancy Holt: Sightlines with Contemporary Art Historian and Museum Director Chris McAuliffe. The one-hour tour will be followed by a small reception in the Remis Sculpture Court.
If you are interested in the Tufts Museum Studies graduate program, make sure to attend the open house coming up this Wednesday, March 7 from 6:30 – 8:30 p.m.
It promises to be a fun, informative talk, and I’m not just saying that because I’m one of the presenters. Come visit even if you’ve already applied to the program, as you’ll be able to meet professors, hear overviews of courses you can take, and meet current students and recent graduates.
RSVP online here, and email Angela Foss with any questions.
This sounds really interesting and right up the museum studies alley. Check it out if you can!
