Undergraduate Research Apprentice (2020-2021 and 2021 Summer Fellow)
Zoe Forest (Scandinavian studies and History)
Zoe is helping with the final preparations for a new exhibition at The Magnes Collection of Jewish Art and Life. The exhibition, Time Capsules: The Magnes @ 10, celebrates 10 years since UC Berkeley acquired the Magnes and will display objects featured in exhibitions from the last 10 years. She is helping to edit exhibition labels and increase community engagement with the objects. She will also begin helping with plans for an exhibition in Fall 2022 about Jewish and Islamic art.
“I am so grateful to continue my work with the Magnes over the summer. I hope to pursue a career in a museum and the Magnes has been a terrific introduction to museum operations and collection research. With the summer stipend, I will continue to gain new museum skills and work in different parts of the museum’s operations.” – Zoe Forest
