This internship report describes my experiences and impressions while working with The Ogden Museum of Southern Art (OMSA). The OMSA will be a museum devoted to the visual arts heritage of the American South. The museum is scheduled to open in 1998. At the time of my internship the OMSA was in the middle of a capital campaign to raise the necessary funds to house and endow the collection. My internship consisted of planning and implementing an educational program. The event introduced the new director to the various groups that are cooperating to make the OMSA a reality.
