Sometimes you walk blindly into a situation knowing that it’s going to be one from which you’ll emerge—I hesitate to say “enlightened” or “a better person”—but no doubt in some way changed.

This Is Not Goodbye

Tomorrow is the last day of my internship. Putting that down in writing doesn’t make it seem any less surreal. It doesn’t help that today has been particularly unusual for me. I share an office with Kathryn and Mckenzie, both of whom are in LA today, along with Tiffany. (Mckenzie and Tiffany work with conservator […]

Culver City

This is our second week interning here at the gallery, and I thought today would be the perfect time for my very first blog entry. One of the perks of this internship is that we all get the opportunity to talk to people who have made careers for themselves in the Art World. Today we […]

Digitize This

What’s with all the digitization?Everything from newspapers to slides in the slide library to magazines to museums collections are being digitized, and it’s pretty unsettling- specially for all of us old fogeys who love everything in print and on paper. We were talking with Kirk the other day and he definitely wishes that everything wasn’t […]

On Growing Old

I think it’s time I post something. Sim thought it was time a month ago. I haven’t written in large part because I haven’t known what to write about, haven’t felt inspired. But I think I’m ready. Sim, this one’s for you:This summer, and especially during the past couple of days, I’ve been thinking a […]

The Widening Gap

A couple of months ago, I made the decision to declare two separate majors. It wasn’t really a hard decision to make; in fact, it seemed perfectly logical because I have loved both Art and History since sixth grade. To date, I’m really glad that I picked these majors, so let me just preface this […]
