Director of Safety and Security Randy Nichols recently teamed up with the Bowdoin College Museum of Art to create a new audio tour for the popular exhibition, Along the Yangzi River: Regional Culture of the Bronze Age from Hunan.

Nichols lent his distinctive voice to the cell phone tour, which highlights several of the Chinese bronzes included in the show. Formerly a radio show host, Nichols is no stranger to the recording studio and was eager to help.

For a sampling of Nichols’ contribution, dial (207) 370-6653, Ext. 112 to hear an introduction to the Chinese bronzes exhibit.

Over the summer, Museum of Art Education Student Assistants┬áMax Brandstadt ’13 and Molly Clements ’13 first introduced the cell phone tour, which provides additional information on various objects from the show.

Student Assistants to the Curator Chris Omachi ’12 and Ted Clark ’13 recently expanded the tour of the exhibition, which will remain on display at the Museum of Art through January 8, 2012.
