Recent Art History graduate Hannah Wier (BA ’18) caps off her outstanding undergraduate career this summer with a curatorial internship at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. Hannah is based in the Department of European Painting, where she researches objects and updates records in the museum’s database, using exhibition histories, published references, and conservation records. In colloquium sessions throughout the week, PMA interns are also introduced to aspects of museum work outside their own departments.
This opportunity is both the result of and a prestigious addition to Hannah’s curatorial resume. While earning her BA in Art History, she served as an intern for Professor Mary Stewart’s Contemporary Art Foundations course, participated in a museum-visitor research project with Dr. Lauren Weingarden, and led the curatorial team for the Museum Object class exhibition The Thrill of the Hunt. In a 2018 internship at the Museum of Fine Arts, she gained further experience in museum installation design and techniques, and co-curated the William Walmsley Day-Glo Prints show now on display in the WJB Gallery.
Hannah graduated summa cum laude in the spring with a BA in Art History and minors in French Language and Museum Studies. She completed the Florida State University Honors Program and is a proud member of the FSU chapters of the Phi Beta Kappa and Phi Kappa Phi honor societies. She was the 2018 recipient of the Helen J. Beard Undergraduate Scholarship for Excellence in the Major from the FSU Department of Art History.
Beginning in August 2018 Hannah will attend Washington University in St Louis, pursuing a Master’s Degree in the Department of Art History and Archaeology.
