Margo Squire

Margo has loved art since her first art history course in college. 

“As soon as the lights went off and the first slide came on, I was hooked,” she said.

With a background in modern, contemporary, and the Avant-Garde, Margo was first inspired to become a Weisguide not only because of WAM's campus energy, but also because of the multidisciplinary collaborations that take place between artists and university researchers. She appreciates WAM’s dedication to exhibiting shows that grapple with local issues, as well as our long tradition of employing and lending art to students. As if she wasn't busy enough at WAM, Margo also leads tours at the Minneapolis Institute of Art and at the Museum of Russian Art. 

In her tours, Margo hopes to cultivate discussions in which visitors can learn from each other. Her favorite tours are ceramics.

“Most people have done some pottery early in life, but are not familiar with how ceramics has developed as an art form. That includes me!” Margo said. “So, I enjoyed learning all about ceramics and the history of the pots in this collection.”
