Meridian Interns, drawing section, 1997

In 1996 I co-founded the Meridian Interns Program (MIP) at Meridian Gallery in San Francisco with Amy Berk and Meridian Founders/Directors Anne Brodsky, and Tony Williams. Together we developed all components of the curriculum and program design. In addition, I produced the grant proposals and fund development plan to raise the money to launch the program. The program began in the fall of 1996. I co-directed and co-taught the program until fall of 1997. Since then MIP has continued very successfully under the direction of Amy Berk.

The Meridian Interns Program is an eight-month program that provides high school students with a comprehensive educational experience in the arts and a unique introduction to non-profit management and community service. Students create their own work, as well as gain considerable exposure to galleries, museums and individual artists in the Bay Area. Student projects have included the production of a 'zine, several mural projects, and an annual gallery exhibition.
