ART BITES are 30-minute, 3-stop tours given by Student WAM Guides developed under instruction from WAM’s LEARNING & ENGAGEMENT ASSOCIATE, Olivia Comstock.
This FREE public tour is given and developed around the theme of “MEMORY & NOSTALGIA” by José Miguel Manrique. While every individual has their own particular story, shared familiarities connect our pasts and the emotions we experience. Through interactive quick sketching and close-looking activities at three selected art pieces currently on display, we'll explore what elements of our lives transcend to be part of an universal narrative.
The current Student WAM Guide cohort is comprised of: JOSÉ MIGUEL MANRIQUE [They/Them] – (Sophomore, Product Design & Creative Writing), SIOBHAN MULLOY [She/Her] – (Junior, Art History), and BEVAN BREAUX [They/Them] – (Senior, Asian and Middle Eastern Studies/Japanese).
The WAM Guides program is a paid opportunity for University of Minnesota students to develop and lead interactive, close-looking tours of the museum for the visiting public. Drop in, meet other curious-minded museum goers, and listen to your WAM Guide approach the museum’s collection via a theme of their own choosing.
