The Hood’s internship program is continuing throughout the museum’s closure. Last year, Hood interns developed Virtual Space for Dialogue (VSFD) projects in lieu of physical Space for Dialogue exhibitions. Students chose works from the Hood’s collection and developed websites around them. Dartmouth’s DALI lab provided assistance in terms of design and technical support. Projects ranged from an exploration of public sculpture on campus (a project that would be impossible in a gallery exhibition) to a close look at the iconography of one specific object, a Native American Winter Count. You can explore the VSFD projects through the Hood’s website or the VSFD site.
Meet the Hood’s six interns for the 2017–2018 academic year! Our two programming interns, Ashley Dotson and Tess McGuiness, are developing programs for Dartmouth students around current exhibitions. Our two curatorial interns, Kimberly Yu and Gina Campanelli, are researching Hood objects and possible new acquisitions. Our public relations intern, Marie-Therese Cummings, is promoting Hood programs and events on campus. Finally, the Hood’s classical coin intern, Emily Carter, will be working with Professor Roberta Stewart to research coins in the museum’s collection. Five of our interns are also working together to curate a photography exhibition that will be on display at the museum’s reopening.
