“I was surprised to learn so many museum staff are artists, or have creative backgrounds. Ready for an adventure and wanting to get the most out of my internship at ICA this summer, I made my way to meet some of the team of preparators and learn more about what they do.”
—Jordan Deal, teen marketing intern
“ICA afforded me such unique opportunities to interact with the dynamic contemporary art world. It enriched my Penn experience, and ultimately informed my career choice.”
—Emily Kaplan (C’10), Associate Specialist at Sotheby’s
“I’ve been a member of ICA’s Student Advisory Board since my sophomore year at Penn, but, until this summer, I still saw ICA as a visitor. Under Robert’s patient guidance, I navigated ICA’s inner workings in a way that always felt meaningful.”
—Heather Holmes (C’15), curatorial intern
