Bulldog Art Tours

Experience the Spencer from the perspective of eighth-graders from Southwest Middle School in Lawrence, KS, home of the Bulldogs! Each year, as part of a communications class project, students visit the Spencer Museum to study artworks and choose one to use as inspiration for an audio guide. The narratives inform listeners about the selected artwork and also incorporate the students' own observations and reactions.
