My last internship in college was at the Indianapolis Museum of Art, where I worked from January to April of 2013. It’s a unique institution with a beautiful collection, wonderful staff, and is a great community spot for families and students alike.
I worked in the Development department honing my fundraising skills. I helped to write donor letters, researched new museum initiatives and how best to present them to audiences, and worked to promote the projects of other museum departments. At all times I was learning how a museum staff worked together, how special events were orchestrated, and how communications inside and outside the museum forwarded the institution’s mission. I had a blast!
