As I searched for an internship for this past summer, I knew I wanted to work in a museum communications department. GW’s School of Media and Public Affairs is within walking distance of many of the Smithsonian museums in Washington, D.C., but I had another museum in mind. I found myself looking to Cooper Hewitt, a Smithsonian museum located along Museum Mile in New York and an institution that stood out to me for its incredible design exhibitions that challenge audiences and raise important questions. Cooper Hewitt’s Peter A. Krueger program offered me the opportunity to work with their communications and marketing department and visit other arts organizations in the city throughout my time in New York.
