Congratulations to Art Department alumna Valerie Lazalier (Art History) let us know recently that she has received a competitive and coveted internship at the National Gallery in Washington D.C. Valerie is currently finishing a dual masters degree in Information and Library Science and Art History at Indiana University in Bloomington, Indiana.
Valerie had this to say about what she'll be up to during the internship: "I will primarily work in the Gallery Archives gathering provenance information from historical documents relating to the collection of Lessing J. Rosenwald, one of the Gallery's founding benefactors. I will then use the data to create web content in support of the Rosenwald Project, a joint effort of the National Gallery of Art and the Library of Congress. During the nine weeks, I will also attend biweekly museum seminars held to introduce interns to the broad spectrum of museum work, and to Gallery staff, departments, programs, and functions."
