What have you been up to since you graduated from Dartmouth in 2014?

After graduating, I had a 2014–2015 Fulbright Research Scholarship in Berlin to study German art. I then went on to get a masters degree in art history, with a concentration on contemporary American art, from the Courtauld Institute in London, with the generous support of Dartmouth’s James B. Reynolds Scholarship. I now work at the Museum of Modern Art in New York, where I am the Modern Women’s Fund 12-Month Intern...

What have you been up to since you graduated from Dartmouth in 2015?

I am currently a legal assistant working for a plaintiff’s-side law firm in San Francisco that specializes in employment law and fighting discrimination in the workplace. I will soon be applying to law school. I am still open to a career in the arts, but perhaps from a legal angle.

Were your original intentions to pursue a career in the arts after college?

Dartmouth students take with them various memories of their college years, whether volunteering at a local organization, a performance at the Hopkins Center, service as a class officer, or participation in a particularly important campus discussion. For the past fifteen years, the Hood Museum of Art has been providing another a memorable experience for students, and also an opportunity to leave their mark on campus. In a special non-curricular course, a group of Dartmouth students get to choose a work of art for the Hood's...

Hood Quarterly, summer 2015

Sometimes, a moment of experiential learning represents such a profound confluence of art, technology, and critical inquiry that it deserves a retelling outside of the classroom (or, in this case, the Hood’s Bernstein Study-Storage Center), and this was exactly what happened for a winter-term engineering class called “Integrated Design: Engineering, Architecture, and Building...

Drawn primarily from the Hood’s permanent collection, the exhibition comprises over two dozen works from across the globe. The majority are 20th– and...

Amelia Kahl, Coordinator of Academic Programming

I was drawn to that specific image because the Hood’s collection includes many civil rights-era pieces, but few of them actually illustrate what civil rights activism looked like. Karales’s photo, with other Karales photos in the series, provides a context for the rest of the Hood’s civil rights collection. Since our group had the opportunity to visit the galleries from which we were evaluating photographs, I’m happy to say...

An anonymous donor has committed $10 million to Dartmouth’s Hood Museum of Art to create a Museum Learning Center—the centerpiece of a major expansion and renovation of the Hood, slated to begin in spring 2016.
