Reilly, Eric2

Interning at the Worcester Art Museum


Name: Eric Reilly

Hometown: Smithfield, RI

Major: Organizational Communication

Internship: Worcester Art Museum: Education Department


Primary Responsibilities:

  • Register students for art classes offered at the museum
  • Proofread and approve memos and pamphlets
  • Complete projects involving data regarding classes


Blog Entry:


The Worcester Art Museum is a charitable, non-profit organization. The organization’s purpose is to provide an educational experience for patrons and a first-hand look and immersion into the arts, as well as culture. A friendly and helpful atmosphere can always be expected by visitors on any occasion.


No two days have been the same since I have started my internship. I have worked on and completed a number of projects already, including the schedule for the current fall semester, and the complete profit projections for this fall. The people I work with make me feel like a truly important part of the team, as I am entrusted with the proofreading and final editing of mail outs and faculty memos. Staff even ask my opinion on issues that I am not even involved with!


A main source of income for the Worcester Art Museum is generated from the Education Department. There are many art classes for youth and adults of all ages. I especially enjoy working with the registration administrator in the Education Department, and helping students find and register for a class that most interests them. Classes range from drawing and painting to printmaking and computer art.
