When I see Twilight Toil, 1943 by American artist Allen Lewis, I think of all those who have come before me to prepare the soil for planting. This elegant woodcut evokes the cool evening air of April, as a jacket-clad farmer walks behind his plow horse, readying his fields under the sliver of a waning April moon.

Less than a month after I arrived at Williams as a graduate student in the art history program, I had my first hands-on experience at WCMA, wielding a paint roller in one of the museum’s galleries!
