Welcome to Off the Wall. We’ve gathered news from around the museum, and want to share the highlights with you.
Something that makes the Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art special is our University of Oklahoma community. The university provides us with a plethora of resources, from faculty and students who help us to present ongoing programming, to cross-campus collaborations with university libraries and other museums that result in incredible exhibitions. Out of all these resources, I think we can all agree that one of our greatest assets from the university is our fantastic student interns. They come from a diverse array of majors and minors, and never fail to impress us with their many talents!
AND THE AWARD GOES TO…
the STORY: Julia Harth
This week, we want to congratulate Julia Harth, a curatorial intern here at the FJJMA. She recently interviewed and was selected for the 2017 President’s Award for Outstanding Sophomore at the University of Oklahoma. This award goes to only 12 individuals, and is the highest honor bestowed on sophomores by the university community. See? I told you our interns are awesome! Julia will be recognized at the Campus Awards Program on Friday, April 7th in the Reynolds Performing Arts Center.
