Student success story
Ivy loves learning about other cultural traditions and languages and global travel. Her work in history, Spanish language and art history led her to apply for an undergraduate research grant trip for a summer-long examination of Mexico’s modern muralist movement. This experience led to an exhibit regarding female muralists around the world with the Shared History Program (Department of History). As a graduate research assistant working for the program, she has worked on five virtual and physical exhibits. Currently, she’s researching Latino history in local archives for two Shared History collaborative projects, one with the Latino Research Center and the other with the Nevada Historical Society. Ivy hopes to work for the Smithsonian following graduation.
