What did you learn during your internship at Artsy?
I was really happy with how fast paced things are at Artsy. I learned how to manage my time and track multiple projects at once. Artists and art historians really do work side by side with engineers and web designers. Perhaps the most surprising thing about Artsy was how genuinely curious everyone was. People were always interested to know what their colleagues—including interns—were working on, and multiple team members would strike up conversations over a work of art I had up on my screen.
Do you have a favorite category?
That is so tough. My favorite two categories might be Eye Contact
—because it brings together such a wide-ranging selection of work—and Collage
—because it is my favorite medium. I also gained a new appreciation for design and decorative arts and enjoyed the opportunity to work with our design specialist, Alex Gilbert.
