I have been lucky enough to be a volunteer, unpaid intern, paid intern, and full-fledged hired employee in a lot of different museums–from the very small and specific, to the medium-sized, to the encyclopedic and kinda famous. As I’ve now completely transitioned into supervising interns myself rather than being one, I thought it was high time I write a post about how to go about getting an internship in a museum.
Contesse d’Haussonville by Ingres (1845)
This is one of my favorite paintings!
My goodness gracious, readers. Has it been a while or what? Our last post was nearly a year ago in January 2011. On the eve of January 2012, I thought I would pop in and share some updates and other more recent museum-related musings with you.
