Museum director interview of the week: Susan Dackerman When you say ‘American art,’ you often think of landscapes of the Grand Canyon, and the discovery of the West— that’s one version of American Art. On an academic campus everyone is talking about what it means to be American in a more nuanced way.” Learn how this translates into the program at Stanford University's Cantor Arts Center at Stanford University in this interview with director Susan Dackerman, the subject of our interview of the week!

It's time for the fifth edition of Meet The Interns! The intern: Aylen Mercado [IG: @memtojxn] The museum: Mississippi Museum of Art Aylen's school: Rhodes College class of 2019 Q: What made you apply for this internship? A: I was drawn to this internship because it offered an opportunity to not only step deeper in a career in art museums but also to learn from the innovative art and community work going on in Mississippi and connect with current and aspiring museum professionals across the country. Q: What’s your favorite thing about the Mississippi Museum of Art? A: My favorite thing about MMA and its initiative, the Center for Art and Public Exchange (CAPE), is that I share a lot of its core values. I was excited to join a team of people who are so welcoming and who are also critically thinking about art and artists in relation to history, voice, and equity. Q: What are your goals after graduating? A: I recently graduated from Rhodes College. My studies combined with my time interning at MMA and the people I have met have made me feel more confident about pursuing a PhD that combines sociology and art. Thank you Aylen! We wish you the best of luck with your future career and your studies studies, which sound like they may have great potential for art museums. We can't wait to see what you do next! This summer was the first year of our paid internship program for undergrads from backgrounds underrepresented in museums.

We're back with another edition of Meet The Interns! The intern: Gabrielle Tenedero (IG: @gabstahgrams) The museum: Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University Danielle's school: The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill Q: What made you apply for this internship? A: I applied for the AAMD internship at the Nasher because I was interested in the project I would be working on, which is conducting research on the Ancient Peruvian artworks that are in the museum's collection. In addition to this, I was also really interested in interning at a museum that not only displayed, but emphasized artworks produced by artists from underrepresented communities. Q: What’s your favorite thing about the Nasher? A: The people. Everyone has been so friendly and helpful not only in helping out with the work I'm doing, but also in offering advice about their experiences in the museum field. The museum has such a great team and it's been great seeing the work that they do. Q: What are your goals after graduating? A: Post-graduation, I hope to go straight into graduate school and study Colonial Latin American art. The internship at the Nasher has allowed me to see that research is something I am interested in doing. Thank you for sharing, Gabrielle! We look We look forward to seeing where your journey (and your research) takes you in the future!
