Gallery and Operations Intern
The Griffin Museum
Internship Program is a rewarding experience for those who are interested in expanding
their knowledge of both the art of photography and the daily operations
involved in running a small highly regarded museum. If this and the opportunity
to meet a variety of people in the field of photography excite you, we
encourage you to contact us.
The internship program is
designed to help students of all ages to learn the inner functioning of a
museum. Interns will be asked to work a minimum of one full day per week and
occasionally assist with special events such as openings, portfolio reviews and
fundraisers. As an intern you will participate in a variety of activities including
visitor services, receiving, unpacking and registering artists’ work, packing and
return shipping, organizing closets, archiving, framing and everything in between.
Interns will also help with prepping galleries and installing new exhibitions
at our primary and satellite locations. Observing the process of work submission
and what is entailed in mounting an exhibition is an invaluable experience for
those who wish to go forward as working artists. Everyday is different at the museum;
we are looking for hard working, flexible, responsible and committed interns with
a passion for the arts and photography.
We will work with
your academic institution to meet internship requirements for course credits.
