Gallery Guide Program

The student Gallery Guide program is an opportunity for Yale undergraduates to learn about the museum’s collection and train to lead interactive, thematic tours for the Yale community and the New Haven public. Students participate in a yearlong training program with museum staff, curators, and faculty members. The in-depth training requires a time commitment similar to that of an academic course. Following the completion of the training program, students remain involved with the Gallery Guide program by giving museum tours and participating in meetings throughout the semester.

Application Deadline: Midnight, Sunday, September 7, 2014

Gallery+

Gallery+ is an ongoing series of collaborations that invites students to respond to the Gallery’s collection through special programs and performances. Taking place once or twice each semester, Gallery+ provides a space for students to experiment creatively, making academic and artistic connections of their own, while also immersing themselves in the collection and museum environment. Past programs have included M.F.A. students from the Yale School of Drama creating sound and projection installations in the Gallery, undergraduate composers writing new music inspired by the collection, and comedians exploring the connections between art and humor.
