About CITYarts, Inc.

Founded in 1968, CITYarts was the first organization to make and install public art in communities where arts involvement is limited. Through this commitment, it has engaged nearly 100,000 New Yorkers of all ages and backgrounds to design and create murals, mosaics and sculptures.

Interns conduct research projects in various divisions, including development, fundraising, public relations/communications, exhibition, marketing, clerical, program development, the annual benefit in May, and the video and studio departments. Interns usually work as assistants with duties such as researching the logistics and locations for touring exhibitions, helping with publicity, organizing mailing lists, preparing press releases, creating promotional materials and working one-on-one with artists.


Open to all students 18 years of age or older with an interest in the arts. Applicants should be able to work in all of NYC’s five boroughs. Those interested in office opportunities should have some computer experience, especially with Microsoft Office.
