College Night: Curation & Design

April 14, 2020

Purchase Tickets

This event is ticketed separately from regular museum admission and we recommend you purchase your ticket in advance.

This event is part of our ongoing College Night series.

So many different fields and professions go into building and running a museum, but often that work is hidden or unseen. Our lecture series will feature at least three museum professionals speaking back-to-back about their roles and how they ended up in their line of work. Each evening is designed to introduce students to the diverse skills that go into the making of a museum.

After sharing these experiences, Poster House will lead students in a professional development session that will help prepare them to apply for a museum internship or other job in the field.

This Tuesday, hear from legendary design scholar Steven Heller, our chief curator, our design director, and work with our staff to find your perfect museum job!

6:30pm: Legendary design scholar Steven Heller speaks about the design field and its diversity and application.
6:45pm: Chief Curator Angelina Lippert reviews the process of putting together an exhibition season and gives an introduction to curation.
7pm: Design Director Ola Baldych speaks to how she designs exhibitions and other materials for the museum.
7:15pm: Prepare for Speed Dating! Work with museum staffers to identify which departments you are interested in and prepare for our Internship Speed Dating event on April 29!

Tickets: $10 at the door/$7 online (free for student members)
