What she does...

Thao in the University Art Museum

Great DaneThao learned how to manage a large scale art exhibit last semester, as part of her internship with the University Art Museum. "We're privileged to have access to all this--the UAlbany museum has had pretty impressive exhibits, like Andy Warhol. The staff cares about having students involved too." She is also researching black and white photographer Andreas Feininger and archiving photo annals and facts about the museum's art collections, which amounts to almost three-thousand pieces.

Great Dane "I've always wanted art in my life. In high school, I was more into making art. Then I was trying to find a major freshman year, and Art History came most naturally to me."
