More About Volunteering

Thank you, MMC class of 2020-2021!

As the second semester wraps up, and before they enter their internships, the students wanted to give you a behind-the-scenes peek at what their year looked like for the Museum Management and Curatorship class of 2021. Enjoy this video as you see highlights of all they have accomplished and remember to be on the lookout for when you can view their exhibition in person!
