  • John Epp


    John is a current graduate student in Public History at the University at Albany. He is a big New York Yankees fan and enjoys learning about people. Throughout his time with us, John’s highlight has been aiding in the creation of the Collections Study Space – a space for students, faculty, and the public to learn about art and specifically our collection in a hands-on environment. John’s confident in his pursuit for a career in the museum business – as he says, “When you hold history [in your hand], you can feel it”.
  • Tara Ilyadis


    Tara is a double major in Art History and Sociology at UAlbany and will be graduating in May 2019. She enjoys painting, drawing, crafting, cosplaying, and binging watching TV. Her favorite part about interning at the University Art Museum is that she loves the environment. “Everyone is so welcoming, and they really care about your input. It has been a great learning experience, and has helped me to develop skills I can definitely use for my future.” Tara is also an intern for the Gender and Sexuality Resource Center, as well as Peer Mentoring with the WCI program. Her favorite artist is Artemisia Gentileschi. “Gentileschi was a fantastic woman, who fought against her societal norms and produced beautiful works in the process.”
  • Ossie Jon-nwakalo


    Ossie is a current Fine Arts major at UAlbany. In his free time, he loves to watch movies, read books, and listen to music. Ossie’s favorite artists are Jean-Michel Basquiat, Cy Twombly and Clyfford Still. The former two for their raw, minimalist, and loud approach to painting; and Still for his colorful and large-scaled pallet knife works.
  • Jaquelyn Mendez


    After completing her MA in Visual Art, Jaquelyn is continuing as an MFA student at the University at Albany. She's a cinephile, urban explorer, and amateur photographer. She also enjoys wasting hours of her time surfing Air B&B and planning possible future trips all over the globe; which she probably won't get done until she's in her late 40s, an empty nester, and actually has the funds to do so.
  • Kate West


    Kate is one of our communications and social media interns at the museum. She is a junior at UAlbany majoring in Communications with a double minor in Business and Journalism. In her free time Kate enjoys listening to music, thrift shopping, and collecting postcards. She is from Upstate New York, and is a dedicated Buffalo Bills fan. Kate also writes for The Albany Student Press. Her favorite thing about interning at the University Art Museum is the staff. “Each staff member has been so kind, helpful, and patient as I have learned the ropes. Their open willingness to share their knowledge and experience has taught me so much in the short time I’ve been working here.”
