About this Event
Our panelists spent the summer in historic houses, art galleries, and engaged in personal artistic practice. We will explore our focuses throughout the summer, each of which revolved around art, history, and community, our paths diverging as we interacted with either the process of saving or selling historical items and pieces of art. In finding the significance of the pieces we were caring for, we each discovered a new understanding for the impact of community support when it comes to the success of a gallery or historical site. We also learned how we may continue to use this understanding in our future careers with upcoming graduation. Our internships also helped us foster a deeper appreciation for the roles we were in, and helped us understand the importance of community engagement in the Arts better. In our presentations, we expand on the individual experiences we had and how they’ve shaped us.
