Over the summer Diya Patel (’26 Philosophy and Psychology) interned for the Escalette Permanent Collection of Art. Her responsibilities included collections management, marketing/social media, and creating/designing display cases. Patel wrote a story about her time interning, highlighting a few of her favorite things she did. Take a look!
This past summer I lived and breathed the Escalette Collection of Art. But, if I’m being honest, I have been fixated since registration day of my first year at Chapman University. I had Fiona Shen’s Freshman Focus Class (FFC) “ Exploring the Escalette Permanent Art Collection: An Experiential Journey” on my list the second I began hunting for classes. Getting into that class felt like a silver lining in an anxious start to my first year of college. Over the Fall semester, I fell in love with all the work the Escalette Collection was doing. Once I met Jean Park, the student worker at the time, I realized that my journey with the Escalette did not have to end.
