MMC at the Museums

Through the MMC at the Museums program, Art department students lead tours of local art collections for MMC alumni.

Each year, one or two students select an outstanding art collection to present to alumni; under the direction of Prof. Bell, they research and write a one-hour tour. In so doing, they gain invaluable experience as researchers, writers, and public speakers. Thus far, MMC students have lead the following tours:

Spring 2010: Jillian Moseman, ’10, and Virginia Melvin, ’10: “The American Wing of the Metropolitan Museum of Art,” 4 March 2010.

Spring 2011: Elizabeth Goodridge, ’11:  “Stained Glass at the Metropolitan Museum of Art: Medieval to the Gilded Age,” 18 March 2011.

Spring 2012: Kayley Fullerton, ’12: “Tibetan Buddhist Art,” The Rubin Museum of Art, 2 March 2012.

Spring 2013: Jessica Balk, ’13: “Ashé to Amen: African Americans and Biblical Imagery,” at MoBIA, the Museum of Biblical Art (forthcoming).

“Among the projects we completed together, I believe there is one that best marks our mentorship. I worked with Professor Bell on an annual alumni event coordinated by the Art department called Marymount at the Met. After expressing interest, she held me to my pledge to single-handedly lead a private tour through the Metropolitan Museum, guiding alumni through galleries of important works in the Museum’s permanent collection. 

I spent many long lunch breaks with her, walking through the galleries, editing, refining, and solving points of the presentation. She taught me to accept evaluation and improve from criticism. The more I lost faith in my ability to complete this daunting presentation, the more she refused to let me waiver in my confidence as a scholar. All of my efforts to relinquish the challenge were overcome by the strength that had grown within me as a result of her confidence in my ability. To this day I am still thankful for her relentless support through one of the hallmark events of my career at Marymount.”
