Susan Hemmingson, Intern
Each year, we partner with the Art Department to sponsor a paid internship for a graduate student. Susan Hemmingson, an native of Cedar Rapids Iowa, UK BFA grad, in her final year of her Master's program, is sharing her time between Education and Curatorial. Upon graduation, she is hoping to teach art history or to work in an art museum. She enjoys the museum because of the immediacy of access to the art- it's not abstract, "It's a different experience to see things up close," she observes. During her time here, she has done research on See Blue, Richard Bell and the Navajo Weaving and Jewelry shows, is writing a teacher packet and enjoys working with people in the community on behalf of Education. We are enjoying having Susan as part of our team!
