Congratulations to Chava Maeve Krivchenia, Fall 2016 BA Art History Candidate; she will be serving a year-long (Fall 1016-Spring 2017) internship at Black Mountain College Museum+Arts Center in downtown Asheville. A large variety of tasks including assisting with day-to-day museum functions, artwork organization, programs yet to unfold, as well as community and visitor outreach.

Chava spent Summer 2016 at Intuit Art Center for the Intuitive Arts, an outsider art museum in downtown Chicago.She served as an intern to the exhibition curator. Since Intuit is a small museum she was responsible for a lot of tasks outside of the internship, but in brief summary: she handled art, wrote loan agreements, helped take down and put up exhibitions, assisted with social justice initiatives, greeted and gave tours to visitors, assisted in grant writing, and condition reports. Amongst many other tasks.... What I enjoyed the most was having different obstacles and tasks to tackle every day. I learned so much from the internship and fully stand behind Intuit's social and artistic initiatives.

Sept. 19-30, 2016 – Photo exhibition: Ravaging the Past: Radicalism, Civil Wars, and the Destruction of World Heritage in the Middle East and Beyond – This exhibit, curated by UNC Asheville Lecturer in Art History Eva Bares and her students, will focus on the art and architecture that has been destroyed by radical groups throughout the Middle East, Central and South Asia, and Mali. This exhibition was on view in UNC Asheville’s Ramsey Library Foyer.
