    High Museum of Art (Atlanta, GA)

    Naromie Andre
    Parsons Paris (Paris, France)
    MA, History of Design & Curatorial Studies, expected 2016

    The main focus of the internship will be research, with special focus on Southern artists and craft objects in the museum’s growing contemporary craft collection. The intern will primarily assist with our new and developing digitization project; this includes conducting research on specific objects, artists, materials, techniques, and craft history, verifying facts, and drafting text copy, as needed, for departmental scholarship.

    Maryland Institute College of Art, Decker Gallery (Baltimore, MD)

    Chrissie A. Miller
    Maryland Institute College of Art (Baltimore, MD)
    MFA Curatorial Practice, expected 2016

    The intern will provide aid in development and work alongside the department’s director and staff, MICA faculty, and the curator of the travelling exhibition, Queer Threads.  The internship is both research-based, and a practical, hands on experience. Core tasks are: working with curator to develop didactic content, develop and establish public programming, and work alongside the installation staff to realize the exhibition in the gallery space. 

    The Milwaukee Art Museum (Milwaukee, WI)

    Emily Banas
    Bard Graduate Center (New York, NY)
    MA Decorative Arts, Design History & Material Culture, 2015

    The Windgate Museum Intern will assist the Demmer Curator of Design with two projects—the reinstallation of the Design galleries and researching the permanent collection of studio and contemporary craft. The intern will assist with many aspects of the reinstallation (thinking about and researching objects; conceptualizing cases/platforms; writing didactics; participating in design meetings) of the Design galleries. Related to this, the intern will build files on MAM’s craft collection for future projects.

    The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston (Houston, TX)

    Sara Morris
    San Jose State University (San Jose, CA)
    MA Contemporary Art History and Visual Culture, expected 2016

    The intern will help identify artists to consider for the museum’s collection, research their background and put together visual resources to review with the curators. Additional tasks will include communicating with galleries, schools, and other arts organizations. Key professional skills acquired will include understanding the development of a permanent collection and strategic thinking for making a case for an artist and their work to join the collection. Additionally, the intern will get to know the MFAH’s craft collection by working on a museum-wide project that consists of verifying and updating object records in our computerized collection database.
