Reed O’Mara receives the Getty Curatorial Internship

Fourth-year PhD candidate in medieval art and Mellon Fellow Reed O’Mara will begin working as the curatorial intern in the Department of Manuscripts at the J. Paul Getty Museum this fall. The Getty houses one of the leading medieval manuscript collections in the United States, and the graduate internship program offers participants hands-on experience with exhibition planning, objects research, and museum work. One of the manuscripts central to Reed’s dissertation on Jewish illuminated manuscripts, the Rothschild Pentateuch, is housed at the Getty. It is an extraordinary achievement, especially so because this same internship was held by our very own Sam Truman a year ago. Congratulations, Reed!
