Maryland Art Place (MAP), a non-profit center for contemporary art, hosts internships throughout the year for high school and college students who would like hands-on learning experience working in a vibrant arts community. MAP programs include: 12-15 exhibitions per year; the Annual Critics’ Residency Program; Curators’ Incubator; the Maryland State Arts Council (MSAC) Artist Registry; Artworks, a quarterly newsletter, which includes the Resource Bulletin for artists; www.mdartplace.org, our informative website; gallery talks, receptions, and much more.
MAP interns generally spend the bulk of their time in the MSAC Artist Registry, assisting the Registry Coordinator with slide scanning, data entry, and file management, as well as performing online research. Other duties may include: assisting the Director of Programs with gallery preparation or installation; general office work like mailing, filing, and organizing; and gallery reception. In addition, there are opportunities for interns to work on more specific projects like archiving MAP's programming history.
Internship requirements vary according to an individual’s school stipulations and/or personal goals. It is helpful, but not necessary, for prospective interns to possess a general knowledge of Microsoft Office programs, Photoshop, or DreamWeaverMX (for PC). In addition, we look for those with a professional office demeanor and a strong desire to work independently on a wide variety of tasks. MAP internships are unpaid and do not include parking. MAP hours are 9 am-5 pm, Tuesday-Saturday.
If you are interested in interning with MAP, please send your resume with cover letter, and MAP staff will follow up to make arrangements for an interview.
