Intern 1

“I am forever grateful to have gotten to work in the OVAC office. They are all so encouraging and supportive and cannot wait to see you do great things, not only for them but also in the art world and community. As much as you’re doing for them as an intern, they want to do for you in your life after an intern. As an artist and recent graduate, I do not think I would be in the place I am in right now without their support and the resources and opportunities OVAC has given me.”
Cayla Lewis, 2012 Intern
