Congratulations, Dana Hogan!

WEST PALM BEACH, FL (July 8, 2014) – The Norton Museum of Art recently kicked off its Summer Internship Program, marking the program’s 20th season. This year’s interns include Tanya Olson, a recent graduate of Brown University, Samantha Tavlin of Indiana University, and Molly Downing and Dana Hogan, rising seniors at St. Olaf College and Williams College, respectively. The interns have varying academic backgrounds and professional experiences, but share a passion for art history. Along with curating their own exhibition entitled PLAY!, which opens July 31, interns are leading tours of the Museum’s special exhibition, Wheels and Heels: The Big Noise Around Little Toys; participating in roundtable conversations with Museum professionals, and completing various tasks for all departments within the Museum. The internship includes challenging tasks that require a high degree of teamwork as well as independent research. Still, the interns say they enjoy the opportunity to act as an integral part of the Museum staff. “The entire staff has made us feel welcome and important,” says Hogan, the Williams College senior. “We are so grateful for an experience in which we can be involved in almost every aspect of the Museum.”

Williamstown Theatre Festival’s Free Theatre: Robin Hood
Dashing outlaw. Expert archer. Cunning wealth redistributor. Merry Man. The daring deeds of Robin Hood come alive in this fresh and funny adaptation of the traditional ballads and folklore. Brimming with spirited swordplay and tongue-in-cheek humor, it celebrates the well-known tale of Robin, Maid Marian, Little John, Friar Tuck, and the rest, while cleverly reinventing the myth. The Williamstown woods are magically transformed into Sherwood Forest as sought-after director Stella Powell-Jones enlivens this legendary swashbuckling adventure on the outdoor Free Theatre stage. Bring the whole family and a picnic for a merry evening under the stars!
July 16 - July 25 | 7:30 p.m. | Poker Flatts Field | Free!
