Sarah Potter '19
Majors: Art History and Anthropology
Hometown: Worcester, Massachusetts
Internship: Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, North Adams, Massachusetts
To publicize MASS MoCA and its mission, Potter might send emails and update spreadsheets one day, then promote the museum’s summer concert series the next. She also ran weekly patron tours, where her art history major proved valuable, while her anthropology major provided a lens to study a region formerly dominated by industrial factories. She’ll combine everything she’s learned, including new writing skills, as she pursues a museum studies certificate.
Writing in the museum's specific voice has been a challenge, but it has also been the most rewarding part of my experience. My writing has improved, and I plan to apply these skills to a job in communications or journalism after graduation.
