I am a senior, majoring in Art History and Museum Professions at the Fashion Institute of Technology (FIT) in New York City.
Prior to my graduation in May 2016, I am interning at a museum for my final semester.
I created this blog to share the opportunity with my readers and allow them to peep behind-the-scenes of the museum...
... and also to fulfill the requirement of my internship credit. (Blogging is a part of the internship program!)
Thanks to my kind and supportive supervisor and the museum director, who encouraged me to photograph the museum scenes and post them here, this blog has been made possible.
I will keep posting the pictures I take as I work at the museum during this semester.
As the first post of this blog, I introduce the museum.
This is where I intern!
Orangetown Historical Museum and Archives
This museum, located in Orangeburg (in ROckland County), NY, was founded in 1992 to preserve and exhibit objects which tell the history of this local area: the Town of Orangetown.
The museum building is a beautiful and historical Dutch-style sandstone house preserved by the town.
In past exhibitions and research, stories from centuries ago in this town have been introduced by this history museum.
I have been working as an intern at this museum for three weeks, and I already love my intern days. This is a small museum compared to some famous ones in New York City, but I can communicate with other workers very closely, getting involved with various tasks of museum work.
I am so happy and excited about being a part of this museum!
Thank you for reading my post!
More stuff is coming next time.
Drop by my blog and enjoy peeping beyond the museum doors again!
