These reflections glean the energy that comes from working in a beautiful and historic home like Reynolda House, where ideas and inspiration are shared, peaceful landscapes are framed in every window, and inevitably, curious people gravitate.

Carolyn Cargile is a senior at Wake Forest University. She is originally from San Angelo, TX, but is also proud to call North Carolina home. Although majoring in History with Medieval Studies and Spanish as a double minor, Carolyn is connecting to her lifelong interest in art and museums with this internship. She has loved Reynolda House since her freshman year and is thrilled to have the opportunity to intern here. Carolyn hopes to learn as much as she can about museum work, art collections and art education. In the future, she plans to attend graduate school and pursue a career in the museum field.
Originally from Hiroshima, Japan, Minori Egashira is a junior at Wake Forest, majoring in Art History with a double minor in Studio Art and Cultural Resource Preservation. In her internship, which will include a correlation research project, she looks forward to learning about the stories and connections each work has with each other (and to herself). She is interested in the historic house as well, having not had much of a chance before to learn about the Reynolds family.
