Newport Art Museum is proud to release a video documentary about our pioneering MUSE program. MUSE intern Mikael Wurman, a graduating senior from the East bay Met School class of 2015, created this short film.

Mikael worked for several months on the film, taking raw footage, interviews and panning shots, compiling it together and editing the final release. This informational film reaches potential new students and introduces the public to the MUSE program.


Internships are an important part of MUSE. Mikael made the film as his senior project for school during his MUSE internship at Newport Art Museum. He worked closely with MUSE Coordinator Peter Dickison to script and edit the short film consistent with institutional standards of the museum. The learning experience of fulfilling the needs of a client, publishing educational content in video format and creating a YouTube channel for the MUSE film made for an excellent internship experience for Mikael while providing a valuable service to the museum that will identify MUSE to a worldwide audience.

“I am grateful to the Newport Art Museum for the opportunity to make this film. The MUSE program was great.  I was happy to be able to make a contribution back to the Museum,” said Mikael.
