The Drawing Center is the only fine arts institution in the United States that focuses solely on the exhibition of drawings, both historical and contemporary. The center was established in 1977 to provide opportunities for emerging and under-recognized artists to demonstrate the significance and diversity of drawings throughout history, and to stimulate public dialogue on issues of art and culture. The center is located in SoHo, known for its large number of galleries, museums and artist studios.
Rotational internships provide participants with the opportunity to acquire practical experience in a small art museum. Interns rotate through one of two groupings of several departments: contemporary curation and the viewing program for emerging artists, education and operations; or historical curation, registration, publications and development/marketing. Interns work with museum staff to become familiar with each department. Interns can assist in exhibition installations and de-installations. Interns must attend opening receptions for all exhibitions, and assist with at least one special event each month during the duration of the internship.
Open to undergraduates with at least one year of study completed, graduate students and recent grads.
