Anapaula was born in Monterrey, Mexico and hails from the Rio Grande Valley. She is currently pursuing a double-major in Radio-Television-Film and Theatre and Dance and minors in Arts Management and Administration and Latino Media Studies. Anapaula hopes to learn more about how to make art more equitable and accessible for all.
Alexandra Martinez, Education Intern
Alexandra Mendez is a rising second year MA student in Art History. Originally from San Juan, Puerto Rico is a part of the Center for Latin American Visual Studies. Alexandra's research focuses on Cuban photography, specifically the relationship of photographers to the city of Havana. In 2017 she received Fulbright Scholarship where she taught in Spain for a year. This year she worked as an education and teaching fellow at the Blanton Museum of Art where she focused on bilingual educational outreach. As an education intern for Landmarks she looks forward to deepening her interest in public art and working to further initiatives towards diversity, equity, and inclusion.
Anna Joaquin, Landmarks Programs Intern
Anna Joaquin (she/her) is an organizer, artist, and educator from Chicago, IL pursuing an M.A. in Performance as Public Practice at The University of Texas at Austin. Her research interrogates relationships between theatre and social change, particularly through the lenses of community organizing, performative allyship, and materialist criticism. Joaquin holds a B.A. in Theatre and a minor in Mathematics from Loyola University Chicago, where she was active as a performer, dramaturg, choreographer, music director, and communications associate. She has also worked with youth through organizations such as GEAR UP, Upward Bound, The Cherubs at Northwestern University, and Youth & Opportunity United. Joaquin is drawn to Landmarks' commitment to accessible art for all, and she is eager to support both the Communications and Education teams as a Programs Fellow this summer.
We are grateful for the BLANK Foundation for making these internships possible.
