The Wells-Bishop Internship was established in 2004, by virtue of gifts in honor of Carolyn Wells (Professor Emeritus of Biology, Department of Natural Sciences) and in the memory of Barbara L. Bishop (class of 1960, Art Department faculty, Art Department chair) by family, friends, and Longwood University alumni. The internship program recognizes the significant role that Wells and Bishop played in the establishment of the Longwood Center for the Visual Arts.
