Alice Gallagher

Alice Gallagher is a senior at the University of Pittsburgh, pursuing a major in History of Art & Architecture and Communications with minor in French. She is originally from Princeton, New Jersey, but has had the opportunity to live in larger cities, such as Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, and Paris. She is aspiring towards a Public Relations career in a museum or gallery, a desire which began after interning in the press room at the Philadelphia Museum of Art in 2013. In the 2015 fall semester, Alice served as a Teaching Assistant for Professor Gretchen Bender’s Introduction to World Art. While working on a project with the National Flight 93 Memorial, under the supervision of Dr. Mary Margaret Kerr, Professor and Chair of Administrative and Policy Studies, and Professor of Psychiatry, she developed an interest in memorial design and the interaction of visitors within these sites. This initial project inspired her senior thesis, which she will research further when she travels to New York City as a member of Office of Undergraduate Research Field Studies program. In her spare time, Alice enjoys painting, running, traveling, and unsuccessful culinary attempts. 

Alice will give a presentation on her senior thesis at HAAARCH 2015, entitled "Creation and Contemplation: The Flight 93 Memorial and The National September 11 Museum."
