2006-7 Hood senior interns.
Su-Ling Lee ’07, the Kathryn and Caroline Conroy Intern in Public Relations, presents her year’s work to the Hood staff.
The Hood has been offering internships to Dartmouth seniors since its opening in 1985. Many former Hood interns now work at museums across the country, including the National Museum for Women in the Arts, The Metropolitan Museum of Art, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum, and the National Museum of the American Indian at the Smithsonian, while others have gone on to graduate study in curatorial studies, art history, and anthropology that has led to careers in academia.
This year, the Hood had six regular interns and two part-time interns: Su-Ling Lee '07, The Kathryn and Caroline Conroy Public Relations Intern; Deana Wojcik '07, Class of 1954 Education Intern; Alexandra Franco '07, The Homma Family Curatorial Intern; Jessica Hodin '07, Levinson Student Curatorial Intern; Jonathan Beilin '07, Mellon Special Intern Web and Ancient Art Intern; Caitlin Roberts '08, Student Programming Intern; Sarah Garcia '07, part-time Evaluation Intern; Irat Feiskhanov '08, part-time Coin Intern.
"My Hood internship has been a great experience. I have worked every term
that I have been at Dartmouth but I have not always had the opportunity to do
it in such a supportive, stimulating environment. I have learned interesting
skills that will help me in whatever career I choose."
--Sarah Garcia '07
A Space for Dialogue: Fresh Perspectives on the Permanent Collection from Dartmouth’s Students is a truly innovative project that directly engages the Hood's interns in curating small installations of objects in the front foyer of the museum. The interns are mentored by professional staff of the museum and encouraged to perform independent research, develop their own interpretive strategies for the objects they have chosen, and, finally, express their ideas in their own voices through wall labels, a published brochure, and a public gallery talk. A Space for Dialogue, begun in 2001, continues to be one of the most successful ventures the museum has undertaken in relation to undergraduate education and our internship program. The Hood is extremely grateful to the Class of 1948 for making this wonderful program possible and indebted to them for their commitment to support the museum’s role in enhancing the intellectual lives of students.
There were 6 installations for A Space for Dialogue presented by interns between July 1, 2006, and June 30, 2007. Each intern gave a public gallery talk. Please see the related story " New Friends for A Space for Dialogue" (scroll past the first donor list).
