Posting by Danielle Megaffin, Intern with the ROM's communications department
The stars of the Canadian entertainment news show eTalk recently shot a promo segment onsite at the ROM.
Ben Mulroney, Tanya Kim, Traci Melchor, Danielle McGimsie, Lainey Lui, and Jessi Cruickshank spent a day in the ROM’s Thorsell Spirit House to film promos for TIFF. ROM visitors were delighted to catch glimpses of the stars as they toured throughout the Museum.
It’s one of the most interesting jobs at the ROM – the museum artist. Working in a studio soaked in natural light, Georgia Guenther creates replicas of objects in the collection and other artistic displays you may see inside the galleries. She works closely with curators to ensure her creations are both scientifically accurate and realistic.
We stopped by the studio to ask Georgia a few questions about her role at the ROM.
