A Saturday at the Cleveland Museum of Art

On Saturday November 12th, I had the pleasure of joining the History of Art and Architecture department on a trip to the Cleveland Art Museum. I first heard about this trip at a meeting of the Mediterranean Archaeology Club (this is absolutely a plug), as the trip had an Ancient Mediterranean emphasis. In addition to students, the trip also included professors from various departments who hosted mini-lectures in the various galleries with regional focuses on the Ancient Mediterranean.

We ARE Nature

Museum Studies Intern at The Carnegie Museum of Natural History - Fall 2017

Not to sound dramatic, but this semester I was a part of history being made here in Pittsburgh. The Carnegie Museum of Natural History was the host of the 2017 ICOM NATHIST Conference, facilitated by a partnership of the museum and the International Council of Museums and Collections of Natural History and focused on the newest addition to the winding exhibition halls.
