Read about University of Texas at Austin senior Samantha Goode’s Blanton internship experience:
My time as the PR and Marketing intern at the Blanton has proven to be an invaluable learning experience. After I graduate this May I hope to pursue a Masters in Arts Administrations, and interning at the Blanton not only provided me with professional experience, but also allowed me to observe the business side of the arts, which is what I was looking for when I applied. The Blanton Museum is one of the best resources on UT’s campus as well as in the Austin art community and it has been extremely insightful and fun helping their PR and Marketing team. This past semester I have been able to develop my own student outreach marketing campaign for the Blanton’s Fifty Fest, which has allowed me to put into practice the knowledge I have learned from my internship. The Blanton has given me experiences that I will be able to carry on to the next step of my career. The Blanton Museum is one of UT’s treasures and it has been the most wonderful working and help sharing it with others in the UT and Austin community.
