As part of its longstanding education program, the Museum’s internship program aims to give interns real-world experience and insight so that their transition from student to professional is supported, informed, and encouraged. This goal is achieved by:
• Providing current undergraduate and graduate students, as well as recent graduates (within one year of graduation) and high-school students, opportunities to collaborate with Museum staff on projects related to the arts, arts education, and arts administration
• Introducing interns to the broad spectrum of museum work and to Museum staff, departments, programs, and operations
Interns are an integral part of the Museum’s community, helping staff and visitors in many ways. In addition, the Museum seeks to reach underserved populations that have limited access to arts and professional-development opportunities in the arts.
In addition to interning under the guidance of staff on projects that support individual departments in the Museum, summer interns participate in a robust professional development program during the months of June and July. Weekly Lunch & Learns are scheduled with each Museum department, giving interns an opportunity to explore the range of museum work, to meet and network with current museum professionals, to get useful advice for putting classroom knowledge into practice, and to develop interviewing and networking skills. Complementary weekly field trips may include an Urban Trail walking tour, artists’ studio visits, behind-the-scenes tours of local museums/cultural institutions, and other networking opportunities.
The Museum offers both paid and volunteer internships; see individual internship descriptions, as well as descriptions of the UNC Asheville and Rosemary Kennedy Internship Initiatives, at https://www.ashevilleart.org/about/careers/intern/. The Museum regularly coordinates with schools, colleges, and universities to ensure academic credit is received by current students.
