Fine Art graduate Heather Garner has been awarded a prestigious internship at the British Museum.
After graduating with a First Class Honours degree, Heather went on to successfully complete her MA in Art History at Manchester Metropolitan University, after which she worked as an Intern with The Whitworth Art Gallery and then as a Collection Digitisation Assistant on the Outsider Art Collect.
Heather was recently awarded the Anne Christopherson Fellowship for 2018, where she will be working in the department of Prints and Drawings, which contains the national collection of Western prints and drawings, and is one of the top three collections of its kind in the world.
The department holds approximately 50,000 drawings and over two million prints, dating from the beginning of the 15th century up to the present day.
Heather will be responsible for assisting with the Museum’s database by cataloguing, photographing and researching the collection, as well as working alongside the conservation and photographic departments.
