Our 2011–2012 Senior Interns!

Hood Quarterly, spring 2012

The Hood staff is very excited about the diverse and accomplished group of individuals who have been contributing to the museum’s efforts this year. The internship program provides opportunities for Dartmouth seniors from all majors to engage with museum work in various professional capacities.

Senior internships are offered in three main fields: curatorial, programming, and public relations. Curatorial interns research objects, write labels and brochures, and assist with all other aspects of exhibition development. The five curatorial interns are Claire Hunter (Mellon Special Project Intern), Frances Middleton (Homma Family Intern), Chanon (Kenji) Praepipatmongkol (Mellon Special Project Intern), Karysa Norris (Class of 1954 Intern), and Amanda Manker (Mellon Special Project Intern,Yale University Art Gallery Collection-Sharing Initiative).

Programming interns work with staff to create engaging museum events and programs for Dartmouth students, including tours, gallery/studio activities, discussion groups, and parties. The programming interns are Emma Routhier (Levinson Intern) and Kayla Gilbert (Homma Family Intern).

The public relations intern works with communications staff to promote museum events and activities, particularly with its campus audiences.The public relations intern is Hannah Jeton (Kathryn Conroy Intern).

In addition to working within their respective departments, most Hood interns create their own art installation; now in its tenth year, A Space for Dialogue: Fresh Perspectives on the Permanent Collection from Dartmouth’s Students affords them the opportunity to curate a small exhibition from the museum’s permanent collection.Working with Hood staff, interns determine a theme and identify objects to display, help design the installation, write labels and a brochure, and deliver a public gallery talk. This year’s intern exhibitions have incorporated objects as disparate as Bill Viola’s video work and a Kandinsky color woodcut to an ancient Egyptian sepulchral stele, with other interesting forays into the collection on the way.

A Space for Dialogue, founded with support from the Class of 1948, is made possible with generous endowments from the Class of 1967, Bonnie and Richard Reiss Jr. ’66, and Pamela J. Joyner ’79.
