SAN BERNARDINO, Calif. — The Robert and Frances Fullerton Museum of Art (RAFFMA) at Cal State San Bernardino is presenting a new series of workshops entitled “Know Your Museum Career Options Before Graduating.”
Workshops are scheduled for noon on Oct. 4, Oct. 18, Nov. 15, Jan. 24 and Feb. 14 at the museum.
“Know Your Museum Career Options Before Graduating” will enable all majors — mainly art, history, anthropology, archaeology and museum studies — to engage with professionals, ask questions, and perform hands-on activities. Students will develop professionally to become well-rounded and well-guided to pursue their careers by interning, starting entry-level museum positions or continuing their education.
Workshop attendees will learn about conservation, exhibition design in a museum or gallery, curation of both collections and exhibitions, and education in museums. Museum professionals from The Broad, the Bowers Museum, the Palm Springs Art Museum and more will be present to share their past education and experiences and to answer questions.
Additionally, RAFFMA staff will hold small workshops to introduce attendees to general museum operations, including handling objects, exhibition planning and design, curations, research and reservation of collections, and archiving.
Speakers will include Peter Frank, an independent curator and art critic; Sheryl Nakano, owner of Nakano Logistics; Melissa Mariano, conservator for Nakano Logistics; Daniell Cornell, director of art at the Palm Springs Art Museum; Lorraine Cleary Dale, director of education at the Armory Center for the arts; Lauren Girard, director of marketing and communications at The Broad; Victoria Gerard, curator of collections and special exhibitions at The Bowers; and Emily Mahon, senior curator of education at The Bowers.
