INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITIES AT COLUMBUS MUSEUM OF ART

An internship at the Columbus Museum of Art provides college undergraduate and graduate students with practical work experience and in-depth training in the museum profession. While working under the supervision of one of the Museum’s professional staff members, interns contribute to projects, gain insight into the functions of individual departments, and learn about the Museum’s various collections, exhibitions, and programs for visitors.

Internship opportunities may be available in these departments.

(Although internship opportunities are regularly available in many departments, not all will have positions available every quarter.)

Administration: Learn how a museum operates and functions as a non-profit institution. Assist with administrative tasks and behind-the-scene work to explore what it takes to make a museum run.

Collections: Work with Museum registrars to monitor, track, and record the artworks in the collection as well as those traveling for exhibitions. Work with the archives and records of the artwork in the collection.

Exhibitions: Discover how galleries and exhibitions come together. This department manages the galleries, makes frames and cases, handles and delivers artwork, and more.

Curatorial: Learn about the artwork in CMA’s collection and how exhibitions are conceived of and developed. Work with the museum collection and traveling exhibitions researching information about art and artists. (Upper-class and graduate students only please.)

Education: Find out how the museum connects the visitor with the art. Gain hands-on experience with one of a variety of programs dealing with families, students, tours, adults, exhibitions, and more.

Development: This department makes connections with businesses and individuals through endowments, memberships, and donations. Help to keep the museum strong by building key relationships.
