Kaley Kilpatrick

Kaley Kilpatrick is a senior pursuing a HAA major, Italian and Museum Studies minors, and a MedRen certificate.  During her time at Pitt, she’s most enjoyed being able to explore the role of art in communities.  Her senior project focuses on the relationship between children and dark tourist sites, a project complimented by involvement with the School of Education’s Flight 93 Research Team and Pitt's NYC Field Studies Program.  Kaley is thankful to have experienced HAA Teaching Assistantships, internships with Pittsburgh’s American Jewish Museum and Meadowcroft Rockshelter & Historic Village, study abroad with the Florence Cathedral seminar, and the Mary Ellen Callahan Fellowship (received for her project on museum programming for elderly individuals with dementia.)   Outside the HAA department, Kaley works in Special Collections at Hillman Library, serves as president of Tau Sigma Honor Society, and enjoys being an active member of Cornerstone Campus Ministry.

At HAAARCH 2015, she will be presenting on her senior thesis, entitled "Flight 93 National Memorial, the African Burial Ground National Monument, and the Pursuit of Child-Appropriate Memorial Designs."
