Emily will be working with the Guide Programs and Teacher Programming teams in the Education Department. She will research and write content documents on works in the collection for new gallery tours and provide support for teacher workshops that will be held at Crystal Bridges during the month of July. The internship presents an invaluable opportunity to gain professional experience first-hand in one of the nation’s leading museums devoted to American art.
Emily specializes in the visual and material culture of the colonial Atlantic World, with a focus on the Spanish Americas and the Caribbean (c. 1500-1900). Her dissertation project, under the direction of Dr. Paul Niell, considers José Campeche, a Puerto Rican artist working in San Juan during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries.
