Smithsonian American Art Museum Internship
2013 Summer Interns
Since 1968, the Smithsonian American Art Museum's internship programs have provided instruction and inspiration to hundreds of graduate and undergraduate students, as well as others seeking self-enrichment. Former interns have achieved success in professional positions in the art and museum fields, both nationally and internationally.
The Smithsonian American Art Museum offers two internship programs to coincide with the academic calendar. The Advanced-Level Program takes place during the fall and spring semesters; the eight-week Summer Program begins early to mid-June.
Like the museum field itself, the scope of these programs has grown to include participants from all academic backgrounds. Mentoring relationships between interns and staff are promoted, and program alumni are encouraged to maintain contact for networking purposes. An alumni reunion is held yearly.
All internship placements are made by the Intern Program Officer, based on project availability and the individual's qualifications. Please note that internships in the Conservation Department are only available to students currently enrolled in a graduate-level art conservation program. See also Post-Graduate Fellowships in Conservation of Museum Collections. Applicants may suggest assignment in one or more of the following museum areas:
The Advanced-Level Program
The goal of the Advanced-Level Program is to instill a comprehensive knowledge of museum operations. "Hands on" experience is combined with professional instruction in a format designed to identify, stimulate, and promote the academic and professional objectives of its participants.
Students participate in a series of museum projects. The career interests and aspirations of each intern are considered in making placements. These assignments, combined with supplementary instruction, provide exposure to a wide range of museum careers and opportunities. More than twenty-five introductory workshops or seminars in administration, conservation, registration, and other topics—as well as lectures in art history—are presented by field professionals. An extensive reading list supplements practical experience and workshop presentations.
