The Operations Associate team is hard at work in the Gallery this semester! Generally, Operations, as one of the bigger Associate groups at the Gallery, works on planning events as well as making sure they are well-staffed and set to run smoothly. Associate Leader Emma Garschagen, ’19, and Operations team member Vahni Kurra, ’20, filled us in on the Operations schedule in the coming weeks.
The group plans to continue working on engaging with Gallery goers in Aftermath: The Fallout of War through moderating and facilitating the chalkboard inside the exhibition. Associates research new, relevant quotes for the chalkboard each week and encourage visitors to interact with the artwork through a series of discussion questions to promote understanding, empathy, and thought while moving throughout the exhibition.
Operations associates also showed up to help with Family Day at the Gallery on February 18th, 2017, and are currently brainstorming for an all-Associate event to take place at the Gallery.
