Curatorial Internships

Hammer Museum


Sarah Bane


Over the course of my internship, I worked primarily on a research and cataloging project focusing on The Grunwald’s extensive collection of materials by the artist Sister Corita Kent. Working directly with her layouts and prints, I was able to closely investigate her printmaking process, allowing me to expand my knowledge of contemporary printmaking practices. During my internship, I also served as a liaison between the Corita Art Center and The Grunwald as we began to build a research portal that will focus on the printmaker and her process. My experience through the IFPDA internship was invaluable as I am beginning my training for my chosen career as a curator of prints and drawings, as I learned about both the prints themselves but also the role of the museum in preserving the legacy of the artist. Following the completion of my summer internship, I was hired on at the Hammer as a part time research associate.
