MOMA Spring Internship Program

MOMA

The Museum of Modern Art is currently accepting applications for the Spring Internship Program. The Internship Program provides participants in-depth exposure to the workings of individual departments and practical and theoretical training in museum practices, and acquaints them with the role of museums in contemporary society. Working under the supervision of one of the Museum’s professional staff, interns contribute to timely projects, gain insight into the functions of individual departments, and learn about the Museum’s various collections, exhibitions, and programs for visitors. Internship projects are based on Museum needs and requirements and are assigned to interns with the appropriate skills and interests. This unpaid internship runs from January 24th through April 27th, 2012.

College students (must be at least junior status as of Fall 2011), recent graduates, graduate students, and beginning museum professionals. The Museum encourages candidates from diverse backgrounds and academic disciplines to apply. Spring internships require a minimum commitment of two full days per week, one of which must be Tuesday. The application deadline is October 7, 2011 . For more information on the programs, including eligibility and application instructions, please visit: http://moma.org/about/internships .

Collegiate Journal of Art

CJA

The Collegiate Journal of Art, the nation’s only undergraduate publication devoted to art history, has published its seventh edition and we have two copies in the office for you to peruse. Published at Dartmouth College, the journal looks to showcase essays that represent a cross section of the mammoth entity that is art history.   Please drop in and take a look.  CJA invites submissions for future issues – why don’t you think about it!   the.collegiate.journal.of.art@dartmouth.edu
