Meet Amelia Boo, from Chicago, Illinois!
Amelia is a fourth year Art & Architecture History major, and Arts Management minor, spending the spring semester as a Marketing & Communications intern at the Miami University Art Museum. She is delighted to be a new addition to the team, and is very grateful for the opportunity to contribute to the MUAM’s efforts. Amelia extends her deepest thanks!
As a Fall 2017 Art & Architecture History capstone student, Amelia was lucky enough to collaborate on, “Scratching the Surface: Exploring Space in Intaglio Prints,” researching and writing on Max Klinger’s piece Battling Centaurs. Her main marketing and communication undertakings will revolve around the capstone exhibition, among many other duties at MUAM, including social media and content planning and programming.
Beyond MUAM, Amelia is involved in Greek life as a member of a sorority, as well as being the current editorial cover stylist for UP! Fashion Magazine and a Department of Architecture & Interior Design undergraduate teaching assistant. With a background in visual and luxury industries (fashion, interior design, retail & shelter publications) in the greater Chicago area, Amelia is currently preparing for an eventual career at the intersection of art, history and design. She can’t wait to see what she learns during her time at the MUAM!
Amelia grew up on Lake Michigan in a family of avid collectors of everything from Tiffany Studios bronzes and antique paperweights to 18th century english porcelain. She was raised in antique markets on Saturday mornings, wandering through the galleries of the Art Institute of Chicago (her favorite!) on any given afternoon, foraging the showrooms of Chicago’s Merchandise Mart, and constantly searching for the next compelling (and often antiquated!) thing. Amelia’s passions for art, history and design were born of those influences, and allowed her love for all things beautiful to flourish – and eventually propel her art history degree. When not staring at gallery walls in contemplation or nose-deep in an art history textbook, she has an affinity for Sunday drives, white hydrangeas, stormy summer days on the lake, John Mayer, and anything with a little charm and attention to detail.
