Master of Arts in Arts Administration




From May through August of 2000, I served for the New Orleans Museum of Art in New Orleans, Louisiana, as an intern. The institution provides a variety of museum experiences for both locals and tourists, and counted as one of the South's premier art museums. The Museum, however, has numerous issues and challenges. Although the institution is continuously expanding, the next decade will be a test for the Museum's staff members regarding management, programming, and competition. The following report provides overview of the Museum's mission, history, collections, as well as its organizational structure. I explain my internship in terms of tasks assigned, justifying my contribution to the institution.
