Parks and Recreation Carver Museum Summer Associate
The Carver is geographically situated in East Austin, a locale that for years has been the site of the African American community. The Carver is committed to serving all residents of the City of Austin. But equally significant, the Carver certainly provides exhibitions, educational offerings, and public programs that reflect the history, culture, and aesthetic expressions of East Austin’s established black populace. Moreover, significant sectors of this populace have suffered economic hardships, land loss, and disparities in such areas such as health and education—all hallmarks of an “underserved” demographic. Although the “underserved” do not constitute a traditional museum going audience, the Carver reaches out to this group by creating engaging initiatives that reflect the best of their images, interests, and aspirations.
