World of Work Student Exhibition

December 04, 2021 to February 27, 2022

World of Work is a 3-month, hands-on paid internship program for high school students at the Jordan Schnitzer Museum of Art. World of Work provides students with “ready to work'' practical skills and essential 21st century skills by actively engaging them in the museum’s work. The summer 2021 program was conducted almost completely virtually due COVID-19. As a result, the interns had the opportunity to design their own exhibition about their experience. In this show, you will see what the students curated as part of their internship, including artifacts created during the program and descriptions of their process written in their own words.
