Week 2 MoArtDeLand

Today, Febuary 4th, I completed my second week at the Museum of Art DeLand. This week I was doing a lot of social media work. I was mainly making captions for some of the upcoming exhibitions for the museum. These shows include Sentinels by Robert Thiele, Retrospective by Grace Hartigan, and a body of work by film photographer Gary Monroe. I also made four social media posts and a flier for the upcoming Harlem Renaissance Film Series. The film series will be showing Against The Odds: The Artists of the Harlem Renaissance, Romare Bearden: Visual Jazz, Jacob Lawrence, Faith Ringgold, and Betye & Alison Saar. I got to meet a few more people who work in/with the museum. My routine was pretty normal this week. My more regular everyday activities include social media work and slight website upkeep, also graphic design and photography for the museum. My assignments for the next upcoming week include writing two press releases to promote the opening of some upcoming shows and their opening receptions. I will draft them and send them to my supervisor for any revisions. My supervisor also has planned for me to attend the museums Advertising meeting this Wednesday which is pretty exciting. I am excited to sit-in and watch how the board manages their marketing. Then after the meeting we will be doing some things over at the museums down town gallery.

  1. Glad to read you are getting integrated into their team. Be sure to ask people about their various jobs and get a sense of the different roles found in a museum.
