Summer education interns focus on public engagement during the museum"s peak visitation season. This experiential summer internship is an opportunity for current or recently graduated college students who want to explore the dynamic, fast-paced world of museum education. Practical experience is gained through interactions with the public by conducting conversational-style tours in the main galleries, serving at the Information Desk, and managing public hours in Kidspace to help visitors explore the exhibition and create their own works of art at the drop-in ArtBar. Interns help with planning and implementing public programs and private group tours as needed. Interns are assigned specific projects that may include preparing materials for education programs, writing tour guide information packets, and conducting research on artists and other public engagement programs. Successful candidates should be self-sufficient, have an eye for detail, strong oral, writing, and research skills, an enthusiasm for public speaking, and strong customer service skills. They should be able to learn quickly and be confident in their abilities to take on ?trial by fire? challenges. Preference is given to candidates with museum / art education experience. Weekend hours required. A drivers license might be helpful, but is not required.
