An internship at the Halsey Institute is an invaluable opportunity for students (and recent graduates) at any level to gain experience in a professional gallery setting. Our interns become involved with all aspects of the Halsey Institute, starting with the understanding of our mission, past programming, future programming, membership, and daily responsibilities of running a nonprofit organization. Much of our interns’ time is spent on exhibition research, writing, installation, and promotion. Although internships are tailored to fit the interests and skills of each intern, participants are deemed generally useful, meaning they have the opportunity to assist with anything related to Halsey Institute programming.
Many former interns have since landed jobs working for galleries and museums nationwide, including the High Museum of Art, the International Center of Photography in New York, Pace Gallery New York, the Metropolitan Museum of Art, San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, and Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, among many others.
The Fall 2019 internship will run August 26 through December 6. Interested applicants for Fall 2019 are encouraged to send a current résumé and cover letter to the attention of Lizz Biswell, Director of Public Affairs at BiswellL@cofc.edu, by Friday, July 19, 2019.
