Each semester, the David Owsley Museum of Art hires students for internships within the museum. This spring semester, DOMA is welcoming four new interns to their team. Get to know a little about who they are and what they will be doing for the museum in the coming months.
Teagan Hayes is a junior doubling majoring in History and Anthropology. She will be working as an Education Intern, and she applied for the internship so she could learn more about possible career paths within the museum industry utilizing skills from both of her majors. Hayes is looking forward to helping with all of the events this semester and familiarizing herself with all of the art that is in the museum. She has a dog named Davy Crockett and she hates mayonnaise.
Olivia Miller is a junior majoring in the Art Education Program. She will be working as an Education Intern, and she applied for the internship for an experience outside of a traditional classroom. She is looking forward to organizing events and programs for the museum and also training to be a docent. Miller is a creative at heart, whether that be watching live performances, cooking or participating in the Jump Rope Club.
Milo Hardison is a sophomore majoring in English Literature. They will be work as a guard and Education Intern, and they applied so they could get more experience with a museum, especially the behind-the-scenes work. Hardison is looking forward to helping with different programs and getting to do more research on art. They will often end up spouting a random obscure fact, including that their favorite animal is either a cat or a raven.
Tori Smith is a junior majoring in Journalism. She will be working as the Public Relations and Social Media Intern, and she applied for the internship because she wanted to use her technical skills in a creative environment.
