Hi! My name is Sophie Don,  I'm in the second year of the MA program. Before Brown, I studied history at Skidmore College and then worked in tourism and art education in my home city of Philadelphia. Most of my professional life has been at the Philadelphia Museum of Art leading tours for families and school groups and coordinating a public art program in and around the city. I'm interested in how cultural institutions connect their collections to contemporary artists and performers. Through my classes and the practicum I've had great opportunities to explore theory and practice related to my particular interests. Besides my courses, I hold positions in the graduate school student government and in our program and am trying to find the best lobster roll.
