Location: The Walters Art Museum
Dates: Fall 2010
In Fall 2010, students in the museums and society course Walking With Reliquaries had the chance to work with the Walters Art Museum Associate Curator Martina Bagnoli on the audio tour for the exhibition Treasures of Heaven: Saints, Relics, and Devotion in Medieval Europe. The students scripted the tour, each selecting two or three objects from the exhibition checklist to research in depth. Throughout the semester, participants in the course gave presentations on their findings, which ultimately became the audio guide. The students are featured alongside the curator and the “official” narrator in the tour so that many voices are brought to bear in the interpretation of the reliquaries.
