Randolph College recently named Sarah Wardlow ’20 and Sarah Mueller ’20 as recipients of its prestigious summer internships at the National Gallery, London.
Wardlow and Mueller will spend eight weeks living in London and working in the Gallery’s development department and Research Centre. They are supported by an academic partnership between Randolph and the National Gallery, London, as well as a new grant from the Helen S. and Charles G. Patterson Foundation, which supports summer internships in museum studies and related fields.
Wardlow is a psychology major and will work in the Gallery’s development department. She has previously interned in the development department for the Lyric Opera of Chicago and is heavily involved in Randolph’s theatre department. She also serves as secretary and treasurer for the Sock and Buskin club. She acted in Randolph’s 2017 production of MacBeth and was stage manager for both Little Shop of Horrors and The Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe in 2018.
Mueller is a double major in philosophy and political science and will work in the Gallery’s Research Centre. Her previous experience in the arts includes an internship with Glen Echo Park Partnership for Arts and Culture. She is involved in the philosophy department’s “Philosophy for Kids” program and is a member of the women’s tennis team and serves on the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.
The internship program is made possible through an academic partnership between the College and the National Gallery, London. Created in 2014, this partnership is the first of its kind for any U.S. educational institution.
