INTERNSHIPS



Unpaid, credit and non-credit internships are available for high school and college students and adults who may be transitioning careers. Throughout the year, assistance is needed with the administrative activities surrounding the planning and installation of gallery exhibitions and public programs, educational and outreach programs, management of the databases and other special projects. Computer and keyboarding skills are required for most projects, but most important is a genuine enthusiasm for and interest in working in an arts organization.
