The spring semester has ended and they are starting to pour in to the museum. Who, you ask? Summer interns. Each year they invade about this time, filing in for orientation, standing in line for security processing and making their way in to departments all over the museum. This summer the Nugget Factory will be welcoming 2 interns, one of which will be really active on the blog, so I thought I would take this opportunity to introduce you to her. Please give a warm, IMA blog welcome for (D)Emily (also known as Emily Lytle).
As you may know from reading the Nugget Factory post a few weeks ago, all of the members of the Nugget Factory have names that begin with ‘D’. When (D)Emily approached us about the possibility of an internship, it seemed a requirement for her to work into that somehow. She started work this morning and will be with us at least through the summer…sometimes interns end up being around forever. That’s how we ended up with Danny.
(D)Emily is a brilliant and brave soul who contacted Daniel and I after we guest-lectured in one of her IUPUI museum studies classes. Her proactive spirit payed off and we cobbled together a project proposal that is actually pretty cool. We will spend the summer working on web projects of all sorts, some in collaboration with Meg. I must say that I am already overjoyed at (D)Emily’s potential to help the Nugget Factory shine even brighter. (I am listening to Madonna’s ‘Lucky Star’ as I type this, doesn’t that just sum it all up?)
Have a great story about a past internship? Motivational words for IMA’s 2008 class? Want to give props to your own intern? Do it all here. With any luck, we can get this blog post included in the mandatory orientation materials for IMA interns.
