Several art history students have been accepted into competitive programs this summer to learn more about their fields.
Hannah Harmon, an art history major and museum studies minor, was awarded a competitive summer internship at the Cahokia Mounds State Historic Site. Harmon was the only person awarded the internship, which also carries a $1,500 stipend. As part of her internship, she will design a temporary exhibit in the Cahokia Mounds museum.
Chaney Jewell, an art history major and museum studies minor, was awarded a competitive summer 2016 curatorial internship at the Contemporary Art Museum St. Louis. Curatorial interns participate in researching, developing, and producing exhibitions and publications; coordinating with artists, galleries, collectors, and other museums; and generally supporting the needs of the curatorial department and the museum as a whole.
