An Intern Journey

In the beginning, I was a new intern, just like any other….
 

Constantin Brancusi, The Beginning of the World, c. 1920, Dallas Museum of Art, Foundation for the Arts Collection, gift of Mr. and Mrs. James H. Clark

 

I encountered many hardships during my internship, like dodging masses of people while leading tours in the galleries…

…and noon-time computer crashes.

However, I soon found my bliss researching teaching materials and leading teacher workshops.

Before I knew it, the internship was coming to a close, and I became reflective of my time….

Now, I am looking forward and excited to be heading off to graduate school to study 18th- and 19th-century French art.

I’ve greatly enjoyed my time at the DMA and am so thankful to have been a McDermott Intern at the Museum this year!  I want to thank you too, our educator partners, who made my job so enjoyable.  Have a lovely summer!
