"I was welcomed to the Quincy Art Center in June of 2015 as the Communication Intern. My duties included posting daily on social media, creating and reviewing press releases, taking pictures of various events and openings, and occasionally earning the opportunity to be interviewed by the local media. The welcoming and fun culture of the Quincy Art Center made my experience as an intern unforgettable. I was encouraged to ask questions and given more opportunities to learn new things and to strengthen my skills. The staff showed me every day their passion for art and creativity, while always remaining optimistic, encouraging and supportive. The time I spent at the Quincy Art Center has taught me so much, I don't think any other experience would have pushed me to pursue my passion. I have a deeper understanding of the field of Communication and applicable experience." -Courtney Gear, 2015 Communication Intern, is shown leaving her hand print.
