Lone Star State of Mind

Just over a month ago, if I were asked where I planned on going after college? Crockett, TX wouldn’t have crossed my mind. Mostly because I hadn’t heard of it yet.  I recently accepted the position of summer arts management intern with the Piney Woods Fine Arts Association for Summer 2012. Now I’m gearing up to head off to start fresh in a new state with my whole career laid out in front of me. I am excited to be working in a community arts organization again. The opportunities that organizations like this one offered me as an adolescent are what geared me towards a career in the arts.

Though the work I’ll be doing there won’t be aimed specifically at the visual arts, the experiences I’m looking to earn with PWFAA will help prepare me for a number of future opportunities.  It’s not clear what will happen after Texas just yet but for now just having something to occupy my time come May is a comfort in itself.
