Curatorial, education internships

The education interns will work with museum staff to develop and implement programming for children. They also will be trained to give museum tours, lead art workshops in exhibit galleries, host museum speakers and staff offsite museum venues.
The Curatorial intern will work directly with the Collections Manager in all aspects of exhibit management including hanging and historical research.
