Arts in Action at the Brooklyn Museum | Ashley Bertolino ('20, Art Education)

Ashley participated in the Arts in Action semester-long internship program in New York City during Spring 2020 and interned at The Brooklyn Museum.

"The Arts in Action internship in New York City was an incalculably meaningful and influential opportunity for me. My experiences at The Brooklyn Museum and in the Arts and Activism course taught by Mildred Beltré have upended so much of what I thought I knew about systemic issues and how institutions occupy the world. You are compelled to continuously explore ideas relating to place, hierarchies, the “culture wars,” and how the understanding of perspectives outside your own can only be accomplished through critical analysis and empathy; concepts that are naturally imbued within the class studies. I had the chance to thoroughly investigate institutions and their diversity (or lack thereof) as well as the chance to work hands-on in a museum setting while exploring how art activism ignites resistance and revolution. Once you learn through the Arts and Activism lens you cannot go back."
