Intern Updates from the National Museum of African Art

One thought on “Intern Updates from the National Museum of African Art”

  1. I just happened across this blog, which touched a chord of nostalgia for me. As a former intern in Washington, D.C., oh so long ago now, I spent many a lunch hour browsing through the Museum of African Art collections. It was there and across the way at the Museum of Asian Art where the complexities of cultural diversity (and similarity) took form for me and eventually propelled me to apply to graduate school in Anthropology. That was the summer of 1992 when I was a newly minted college graduate and fortunate enough to get an internship at the U.S. Department of Agriculture, but it really was at the museums where I felt more at home learning about the intricacies of Igbo and Yoruba cultures, among so many others. It’s wonderful to see that other students get hands on opportunities to participate is such a program!
