Hi! I’m Kendal and I worked under Kate Shafer as an Exhibitions Intern. I had some great experiences during my internship this semester. I was happy to help with the de-installment of the Rebecca Ward: Thickly Sliced exhibition and then the installment of the ID:ENTITY Self Perception + Reality exhibition. I really enjoyed being a part of the transformation of the museums space. While helping with the installment of ID:ENTITY Self Perception + Reality I learned a lot about different pieces in the exhibition from the artists which was an amazing experience.
I was introduced to WordPress when given the responsibility to update the website’s press page. From this I learned a lot about managing websites. I had a lot of fun working on the packaging design for merchandise in CAM Raleigh’s pop-up store. It was nice to be involved in this because the store was new to the museum so everyone worked together to figure out the best way to organize and maintain it.
From all these experiences I gained so much knowledge of how much work goes into each exhibition. My problem-solving skills were put hard to work with almost every task I was given. I was so grateful for this internship experience because of my interest in new and unique art forms.
Most of all I really enjoyed getting to know the staff at CAM Raleigh. Everyone who works at CAM Raleigh is incredibly awesome and I was so happy to become part of CAM Raleigh’s growing family.
