Bachelor of Fine Arts
About My Co-op Experience
A large portion of what I do is to research contemporary working artists and arts organizations. This contributes to maintaining a website and data for local artists and patrons. I also help organize and install gallery openings, design marketing materials for events, and develop future design strategies.
What I Learned from My Co-op Experience
Working for ArtBarcs has affirmed that this type of work is what I would like to do in the future. Interning has given me the confidence and understanding I need to continue, and I can now more easily envision myself in management-type situations.
