Small Fellow in Museum Studies

African American Museum of Iowa

Cedar Rapids, Iowa

Aims of the Fellowship
The purpose of this fellowship is to become acquainted with curatorial and archival best practices within the context of a historical museum. My goals are to sort, house, and organize the Virgil Powell Collection, back up and make searchable online the museum's oral history collections, and revise outdated museum traveling exhibits for re-print.
