Museum Education students engage in summer internships
Museum Education faculty member Cara Iacobucci, who is leading the Museum Studies Internship seminar this summer, writes: "This summer fourteen students are putting to practice what they've learned and studied throughout the year in internship positions around the greater Boston area (and one in Pennsylvania). While some interns are working on new and engaging educational programs, others are getting hands-on experience with art and artifacts as they catalogue, research, and help manage collections. If you're planning a summer museum visit, perhaps you can spy one of our students at places such as the USS Constitution Museum, the Buttonwoods Museum, the Fitchburg Art Museum, the Andover Historical Society, or the Peabody Essex Museum - to name just a few."

Tamar's findings and recommendations were enthusiastically received by MFA staff members. Tamar will graduate in August.
