The Corita Art Center announces its Summer 2014, paid Multicultural Undergraduate Internship, made possible by a grant from the Getty Foundation.
The Corita Art Center is an archive and gallery dedicated to the preservation and promotion of Corita Kent’s art, teaching, and philosophy of peace and social justice. We engage broad audiences and encourage new scholarship about Corita’s life and work through the realization of exhibitions and workshops as well as maintaining an archive of her work and ephemera.
The intern will work in all areas of the Corita Art Center including exhibition preparation, acquisitions, archive, membership, education, marketing, and daily administrative tasks. The intern’s duties will include inventorying the archive and exhibition collection; updating and maintaining the database; adding ephemera to the archive and database; condition reports for serigraph sales and exhibitions; co-creation and facilitation of workshops and educational offerings; gift shop and online sales; and assisting with marketing and publicity materials.
