Next in our series profiling the recent summer internship experiences of Herron students is sculpture senior Carlie Foreman, who wore many creative hats, from gallery assistant to disc jockey, working for the nonprofit organization Big Car Collaborative.
HERRON: When did your internship officially begin and what was it like?
CARLIE FOREMAN: I officially began the internship during the last week in May and it ended when school was back in session. But I will stay on at Big Car as staff artist of WQRT community partnerships.
My days at Big Car began at Listen Hear, a sound art gallery just south of Garfield Park, with morning emails and cleaning after a night or weekend of public events. The internship hours began at 10 a.m. and would end around 4 p.m., with the exception of evening events. I spent my time focusing on maintenance of the gallery and radio station, event planning, and booking.
