The Diversity in the Arts Internship, for undergraduate juniors and seniors and graduate students, is designed to broaden opportunities for those underrepresented in the museum field. The three internships provide $3,500 for each intern for the nine-week period. The interns may work in one or more divisions of the museum, including education, curatorial, public relations, development, or conservation science, depending on the needs of the division and the background and skills of the interns. Candidates may also be asked to work with local, underserved audiences.
The Walters seeks applications from students majoring in art history, art education, museum studies, communications and public relations or arts administration, who are interested in pursuing a museum career. Excellent research, computer, and writing skills are required. Education interns may write curriculum-focused materials or assist with student art studio classes. Curatorial interns may research different areas of the permanent collection or special exhibitions, and assist with collection management. Communications interns may assist with publications and media relations. Conservation science interns may use scientific techniques and instruments to examine artists’ materials and to evaluate conservation methods.
