Welcome Our Spring Interns
We are happy to introduce the three Spring semester interns who start with us this month. Their internship extends through the month of May.
Kristine Cummings, based in Middleton, was looking for a creative, collaborative, innovative environment in which she could develop her passion for art, artists, and the processes that they use to create. With a BFA in Illustration from UW-Eau Claire, and experience as an Artwork Specialist with Artful Home, she’s looking forward to focusing her internship on supporting WI’s artists and enhancing the general public’s ability to connect with art on a daily basis.
We drew Cora Mills from Fort Wayne, IN, following a summer at the New York University Summer Publishing Institute. She comes to us with a BA in English and a BA in Studio Art (concentration in photography) from Wheaton College. Her experiences as Editor in Chief of the college’s literary and arts magazine, as an Interdisciplinary Summer Intern at the Fort Wayne Museum of Art, and as an award winning photographer will stand her in good stead this spring. She intends to pursue a position in arts administration, and says that she was drawn to the WAB internship as a way to “unite my passion for art and community building.”
Laura Foelske, based in Sheboygan, was recently drawn back to Wisconsin from her work at a retail company based both in Tokyo, Japan and in NY City. With a BS from the School of Human Ecology from UW-Madison (major: Textile and Apparel Design; Certificates in Entrepreneurship and in Environmental Studies), she brings a great deal of design experience as well as strong marketing, writing, and research skills to her internship. She will be one of those rare interns who split time between work from a home office and our Madison office.
Kristine will be working on Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. Cora’s still determining her set schedule, but will be with us every afternoon this week starting at 3:00. Laura’s day in the office each week will depend on the project on which she’s currently focused. Between them, they’ll keep us on our toes as we work with them to juggle schedules and projects.
We’re delighted to have the opportunity to work with all three of these remarkable women this spring.
