ArtsLife Application

ArtsLife Internship Program

Dear Friends,

The Museum of Arts and Design is proud to be able to offer a new paid internship program for high school students called ARTSLife starting this summer. We hope that you will pass the attached flyer and application to any students you think might be interested.

The ARTSLife program will assist promising high school juniors and seniors interested in future employment within the arts sector in New York City to discover and exploit their particular talents, and help them decide where and how they would like to implement those abilities in their future employment, whether at the Museum or at another arts organization. These internships will offer competitive salaries along with in-depth, practical business and curatorial training, and provide an opportunity for young people to gain work experience; obtain references from respected professionals in the arts; and begin forging professional alliances.

Thank you in advance for helping us spread the word.

Best Regards,
Aliza Boyer
