ArtTable invites female graduate students pursuing a career in arts administration to apply for our ArtTable's Diversity Internship Program: A Summer Mentored Internship in the Visual Arts Professions. The program supports emerging women professionals from backgrounds generally underrepresented in the field. Through one-on-one mentoring relationships with ArtTable members, interns have the opportunity to work with an established leader in the field and gain exposure to a range of professional activities. ArtTable will provide a $3,000 stipend for each selected intern for an eight-week commitment.

Internship Period: Interns and mentors will agree upon on an eight week period between June 1st and August 31st.

Project: The intern selected for Pomona College's museum will focus on the development of academic programming for an exhibition, Restoring the Spirit: Celebrating Haitian Art, and will conduct research on artworks, consult with key academic partners to help tie exhibition resources to courses, assist the Museum's Academic Curator in planning for guest lectures and artist presentations related to the exhibition, and learn about exhibition installation strategies and procedures with the Senior Curator. She will also be responsible for the development of a smaller exhibition utilizing the Museum's permanent collection, including research, developing the specific concept as well as an exhibition checklist, author didactic text and website text, and return, if possible, after the internship is completed to make a curatorial presentation when the exhibition is installed.
