Alumni Spotlight / Emily Rice / B.Arch 2007 / Currently employment: Exhibition Designer at Carnegie Museum of Art since 2014 in Pittsburgh, PA / Professional focus: "My current professional focus is design and construction of spaces for exhibiting and interpreting art. The museum is complex, with many types of gallery spaces, curatorial focuses, collection strengths, and audiences. I work to define the gallery experience with the exhibition’s team and then realize that vision through the design process. I work closely with tradespeople, fabricators, consultants, graphic designers and art preparators to implement these plans." / " AIAS offered new and different perspectives on the field of architecture. Most importantly to me, my experience with AIAS specifically helped me discover my love of volunteer work -- independent exhibition coordination, board service at Assemble, community-based design projects, etc. These experiences have been as important to me as my professional work."
