Meet one of ArtWorks’ newest interns, Aliese Hewitt.
Tell us about yourself.
I’m 22 and I go to DAAP at the University of Cincinnati! My major is fine arts and I’m minoring in art history.
What are your future career goals?
In my future career I want to work somewhere I can use my creative skills and express myself in my work.
Why did you pick this opportunity?
Living in Cincinnati, I’ve seen ArtWorks make art accessible for the community and I wanted to be a part of the team making that possible!
What are you looking forward as an ArtWorks intern?
For this co-op I get to evaluate all the murals that ArtWorks has, so I’m excited for the opportunity to see so much public art! I’m also excited to work with so many other creatives in Cincinnati!
