The FHS Student Exchange Program has organized and funded nearly 500 internships and residencies for under graduate students in cultural fields, providing hands-on experience to the future preservationists on both sidess of the Atlantic. Five of those students will share accounts of their activities at the Château de Chambord, the Art Institute of Chicago, and the Chicago Botanic Garden/Ragdale.
Student Exchange Presenters:
Jade Boudreaux (Chambord, 2017)
Melis Simsek (Chambord, 2018)
Skye Taylor (Chambord, 2018)
Romain Perez (Art Institute of Chicago, 2019)
Alexis Perrocheau (Chicago Botanic Garden/Ragdale, 2019)
Hors d’oeuvres and drinks will be served on the roof-top prairie garden, and Jeanne Gang will provide a short introduction before the conversation. We are looking forward to celebrating Chicago’s ties to French legacy!
