The art of success

September 16, 2011

Every day, Lorelle Rau ‘09 applies the skills she developed both in class and as a Turchin Center curatorial assistant. Since graduation, she has worked in several professional art settings, including the Corcoran College of Art + Design, in Washington, D.C. An accomplished arts management professional, Lorelle contemplates the meaning of success. “Going to art exhibitions and openings in museums and galleries are things I love to do,” she says.

“They also relate directly to my job. Success equals contentment with your life, and merging these personal and professional aspects of my life feels like success.”
