My name is Anda Brown and I am a Junior Interdisciplinary Sculpture major. I found out about the Museum of Cultural Arts Houston through a segment the founder, Reginald Adams, did on the news. I sent in my application and cover letter and requested a meeting when I was in town last summer, and was able to meet with them over Christmas break to secure the internship.
MOCAH is a non profit organization committed to bringing art to the culturally underpriveledged, using art and creativity as tools for social awareness and community development. It is a museum without walls. They conduct both on and off site team building workshops and install large scale murals within the community among many other things.
Amanda Flores, Administrative Director, was my supervisior. She worked with me to perfect my skills, fulfilling the objectives I created while there. While at my internship, I co-facilitated corporate teambuilding workshops and assisted the administrator in making project menus, brochures, and lesson plan examples. I also searched for RFQ’s, or calls for entry for public art projects, and created budgets and spreadsheets.
