McColl Center Internship

McColl Center’s Internship Program is designed to give individuals who are interested in the arts an opportunity to work in the field.

Internships with McColl Center provide the next generation of arts administrators with the opportunity to be involved in a variety of tasks supporting the operations of a contemporary arts space and artist residency program.

Interns will work with staff in various departments at McColl Center, and get real-life, professional experience. While you will have experiences working with all of our staff, interns apply to work in a single department that meets their primary interests. Internships are available in the following departments:

Residency + Programs: Leads exhibitions, artists-in-residence program, and public programming. Interns will work with the Residency + Programs team to provide support to the artists-in-residence and contracted artists to execute events and programs like open house, artist talks, and summer arts camps. Interns will gain hands-on experience assisting the artists-in-residence in their creative process ranging from research to studio assistance.

Marketing interns can expect unique learning experiences specific to current marketing needs by helping to prepare content for programming and development campaigns. Interns will gain experience collecting and formatting content for targeted audiences and marketing channels, including blogs, emails, and social media.

Development interns will be responsible for researching potential donors and members. They will help prepare, edit, and record acknowledgments and supporting materials.
