FIRST INTERN CLASS AFTER MUSEUM’S EXPANSION INCLUDES STUDENTS FROM
University of Miami, Florida State University, University of Chicago
Following a four-year hiatus during a $100 million expansion project, the Norton Museum of Art excitedly welcomed in June four new interns as its 22nd summer intern class. The group’s primary responsibility will be organizing a summer exhibition titled Posters by Toulouse-Lautrec, which will be on view from Aug. 2 through Dec. 10, 2019.
The group is comprised of three recent college graduates, Louis Dzialo of Hamilton College (Clinton, NY), Magdalena Glotzer of the University of Chicago, and Sarah Ortiz-Monasterio of the University of Miami, as well as Allison Marino, a rising senior at Florida State University. While the interns have individual art historical research interests, they share an enthusiasm for museum work.
Goals of the internship include learning to collaborate in a museum environment and improving research and professional skills. Aside from preparing the Toulouse-Lautrec exhibition, the interns will be leading summer camp tours that focus on fusing art with traditional STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) curriculum, partaking in daily discussions with Museum professionals and assisting with various departmental responsibilities.
The interns say they look forward to the experience they’ll gain working in a multi-faceted and highly engaging environment. “We are fortunate to be in the first intern class since the Museum re opened in February and have the opportunity to organize one of the first exhibitions in this beautiful, new building,” says FSU’s Allison Marino. She added that, “It’s an incredible opportunity to be surrounded by caring professionals who are enthusiastic about fostering our growth.”

About the Norton Museum of Art
Founded in 1941, the Norton Museum of Art is recognized for its distinguished holdings in American, European, and Chinese art, and a continually expanding presence for Photography and Contemporary art. Its masterpieces of 19th century and 20th century European painting and sculpture include works by Brancusi, Gauguin, Matisse, and Picasso, and American works by Stuart Davis, Hopper, O’Keeffe, Pollock, and Sheeler.
The Norton presents special exhibitions, lectures, tours, and programs for adults and children throughout the year. In 2011, the Norton launched RAW (Recognition of Art by Women), featuring the work of a living female painter or sculptor and funded by the Leonard and Sophie Davis Fund/MLDauray Arts Initiative. In 2012, the Norton established the biennial, international Rudin
Prize for Emerging Photographers in partnership with Beth Rudin DeWoody, named in honor of her late father, Lewis Rudin.
In early 2016, the Norton broke ground for a visionary expansion designed by architecture firm Foster + Partners, under the direction of Pritzker Prizewinning architect Lord Norman Foster. (Enabling construction had begun in November 2015.) The project reoriented the Norton’s entrance to the main thoroughfare of South Dixie Highway, restoring the symmetry of the museum’s original 1941 design, and includes a new 59,000-square-foot West Wing that increased gallery space for the Norton’s renowned collection. The transformation of the Museum’s 6.3-acre campus created a museum in a garden, featuring new, verdant spaces and a sculpture garden.
