My internship at the Hallie Ford Museum was the perfect addition to my college experience because it was fascinating to get hands-on experience and learn a variety of skills while receiving an in-depth knowledge of the museum. I loved working directly with the works of art.

Being an intern at the Hallie Ford was one of the most eyeopening and rewarding experiences of my tenure at Willamette. I was able to take a hands on approach to many projects and experience all the intricacies of working in a museum as well as feel a connection to the Northwest art community. As I am particularly interested in conservation, working at the Hallie Ford Museum gave me the capability to meet professionals in the field.

The possibility of interning at the Hallie Ford Museum is part of the reason I came to Willamette University. An opportunity to gain hands on experience in a museum field is not offered at many of the local liberal arts colleges. The Hallie Ford has been an invaluable resource to me, not only giving me experience with handling artwork, but with cataloging collections,organizing exhibitions,and beyond that it has allowed me to become an active part of the Pacific Northwest artistic community.
