We are always delighted to welcome an alumna of Skidmore College’s undergraduate program to our Master’s program.  While studying at Skidmore, India became deeply involved in the workings of the Tang Teaching Museum.  When she accepted a part-time position at the Massachusetts College of Art and Design, she wanted to learn more about museum studies to advance her career.  India received life experience credit for her work as a museum education assistant and took courses in Writing for Museum Publication, Art and Developmental Theory, Museum Education and Interpretation, Exhibition Planning for a Small Museum, and Looking to Learn.  She was also able to work with stellar members of the Tang Museum staff.  Her final project, “Supporting Artists in the Gallery:  The Role of the Museum Educator at an Art College,” speaks directly to her professional aspirations in the nation’s only publicly funded art college.  “By tapping the potential of objects, exhibition themes, and the gallery environment, museum professionals can empower faculty and students to make meaningful and relevant connections to curriculum content. . . .” We are proud to report that India now holds a full-time position at the museum of the Massachusetts College of Art and Design.
