Thank Yous

This website was built as a capstone project for the Harvard Extension School Museum Studies Master's Program. It began as an internship project supervised by Dan Borelli, head of exhibits at the Harvard Graduate School of Design, assisting with the Ashland-Nyanza Project, his several-year-long art piece. It evolved from an iOS app (available in the iTunes store) to this website and eventually, I hope, will include an interactive game linking the two. It has been part of my life for nearly a year. None of it would have been possible without Dan's enthusiasm and encouragement as he went from my instructor to my internship advisor and now a reader on my capstone project. Thank you, Dan; you have been an invaluable teacher and mentor.

Thank you to Katherine Jones, my academic advisor, and Paul Michael Richardson, instructor of the capstone course. Thank you also to Ming Tu, fellow intern for the Ashland-Nyanza Project, who advised me about coding and created the incredible interactive map for the Ashland Public Library that is also hosted here.

Finally, a big thank you to my partner Vladimir Barash, who coached and taught and advised and helped with bug-fixing throughout the project. I would never have gotten half as far without your support.
