As part of my internship I am able to visit two museums or research centers, to further my research, to see their museum collections, and to visit with the curator. One of the sites that I have selected is the Center of Southwest Studies at Fort Lewis College in Durango. My request for a visit was received enthusiastically by the curator when I told her about my internship. She recommended that I visit the Southern Ute Museum in Ignacio. I have made contact with the museum to see if I can set up a private tour and a meeting with the curator. I am hoping to visit them during my fall break.
I look forward to sharing with you about my visits and posting some photographers from my trip.
