Gallery Tours by Students Taking Museum Practice Course
Update: January 27, 2020
ICU students, who are studying in the Curatorial Training Program and had taken part in the display and installation of the exhibits for the "Exploring Hidden ICU Collections" special exhibition being held at the ICU Hachiro Yuasa Memorial Museum from Jan. 7 (Tue.) to Mar. 13 (Fri.), are currently giving gallery tours to visitors.。
On the first day of the gallery tour on Jan. 22 (Wed.), the tours were conducted in English by Ms. Shinano Angevine (1st year student, Master's Course 5-year Program) and Ms. Midori Tanaka (4th year student).
The ingenious ways in which Ms. Angevine conveyed the information by showing maps and related documents at times was effective. "I am reminded once again that what we learn in the curatorial training is related to various fields such as from the perspective of anthropology or that of history. I would like to deepen my learning further regarding the relationship between museums and society," she said after the tour.
