Behind the Scenes: Collections Internship

Moments @ MUAM: Behind the Scenes in Collections

by Bridget Garnai, Collections Intern

Check out the latest post from Moments @ MUAM, our student-run blog at the Art Museum!

This semester I have been a Collections Intern with the Miami University Art Museum’s  (MUAM) Collections Manager/Registrar Laura Stewart. I have been involved with the museum since my first year at Miami, through the museum’s Art Museum Student Organization, which has given me the opportunity to help plan and promote student events. This semester, I have had a much more in-depth look at the operations of the museum and I have been able to work very closely with objects in the museum’s permanent collection. It has been very interesting to gain a better understanding of the depth of our museum’s collection (approximately 17,000 items!) and to learn about how to care for the collection through storage documentation.
