I spent the summer of 2018 interning as a member of the collections management staff at the Dr Pepper Museum and Free Enterprise Institute in Waco, Texas. During the internship, I conducted an inventory of framed artwork housed at the museum, including artwork stored as part of a collection on repository. Much of the work involved in the inventory included cleaning artwork, developing a new storage arrangement for the artwork, updating condition reports and catalog records in Past Perfect, and reconciling unidentified objects to collections records. In addition to these responsibilities, I also completed other tasks related to various complications that arose during the inventory. This report explores the inventory work done, as well as other assignments completed during the internship.
