Meet the Senior Interns

Hood Quarterly, spring/summer 2010

The Hood is very pleased to introduce the accomplished group of nine individuals that have been contributing a fresh perspective to the museum’s activities this year. The internship program provides opportunities for Dartmouth seniors from all disciplines to engage with museum work in various professional capacities. Senior internships are offered in four main fields: Curatorial, Programming, Public Relations, and the Arts at Dartmouth.

Curatorial interns research objects, write labels and brochures, and assist with other aspects of exhibition development.The five curatorial interns are Stephanie Trejo, an Art History major and Archeology minor (Homma Family Intern); Julissa Llosa, a Studio Art and Women and Gender Studies double major and Latin American and Caribbean Studies minor (Homma Family Intern); Eleanor Stolzfus, a History and Art History double major (Class of 1954 Intern); Thisbe Gensler, an Art History major; and Kendall Frank, an Art History major (Mellon Special Project Curatorial Intern).

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 Anna Nearburg, an Art History modified with Studio Art major and Spanish minor (Kathryn Conroy Intern), and Katherine Briggs, a Psychology major.

The public relations and Arts at Dartmouth interns promote the Hood and the arts on campus in general. The public relations intern is Sarah Peterson, an Art History major and French minor (Levinson Intern). Katherine Coster, a Government major, is the first Arts at Dartmouth intern.

In addition to working within their respective departments, most Hood interns curate their own art installation. Now in its ninth year, A Space for Dialogue: Fresh Perspectives on the Permanent Collection from Dartmouth’s Students affords Hood interns the opportunity to curate a small exhibition using objects from the 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. 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.
