10: CLOSING THOUGHTS | This project allowed me to take a step back and focus on a different aspect of the museum, it's employees. I typically focus on the objects in the museum, but I some day hope to be an employee at one of these institutions, so it was an interesting task. I found most of the staff that I was able to see during my visit were lower level jobs, such as security staff or employees at the information desk. I was surprised at the number of staff members I did encounter that I normally would not have taken note of. When in a program like this one, I think we sometimes only think of the higher level positions, such as a curator or exhibition designer. It takes many people doing a variety of jobs to keep a museum running. That is something I will take from this assignment.
