Welcome to the 2012–13 Hood Interns!

Hood Quarterly, winter 2013

Each year the museum hires Dartmouth seniors to work as curatorial and programming interns. The five interns hired for the 2012-2013 academic year are Gwendolyn Tetirick, Programming, The Kathryn Conroy Intern; Caroline Liegey, Programming, Levinson Intern; Jane Cavalier, Curatorial, Class of 1954 Intern; Katelyn Burgess, Curatorial, Homma Family Intern; and Jason Curley, Mellon Special Project Curatorial Intern. These five talented students are majoring in four different areas: classical archaeology, art history, Native American studies, and history.

All of these interns will create A Space for Dialogue installations as part of their work at the museum. This is an extraordinary opportunity for undergraduate students to curate their own small exhibition that is displayed near the entrance to the museum. They are responsible for deciding on a topic, selecting works of art, conducting research and writing a brochure and labels, participating in the exhibition design, and giving a public gallery talk when their show is on view.

The first A Space for Dialogue by this year’s interns, by Katelyn Burgess, opens on January 12. Usually, these installations include only objects from the museum’s collections. Because Katelyn’s curatorial internship is focused on objects on loan to the Hood from the Yale University Art Gallery (as part of a collections-sharing initiative funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation), however, her exhibition will feature four objects from Yale as she explores the theme of representations of ancient Greek women in art.
