In the summer of 2016, I completed a practicum at the Cleveland Print Room, in partial completion of the requirements for my master’s degree in Public Humanities.
I developed curriculum to pilot their youth mastery program on photography. Using LOMO Instax Wide cameras, the program introduces students to photography basics and teaches visual literacy through photographic and writing assignments. The program is generously funded by the Cleveland Foundation and the Lomographic Society International.
I also curated the exhibition “Inside Outside: Dr. Jelliffe’s Slides” based on a collection of 169 early 20th century magic lantern slides previously owned by American neurologist, psychiatrist, and psychoanalyst Dr. Smith Ely Jelliffe. The exhibit opened in January 2017 and was featured on National Public Radio, cleveland.com, CAN Journal, Cool Cleveland, and Cleveland Scene.
