The National Gallery of Art has offered professional museum training since 1964 through internship programs. In this program funded by the Andrew W. Mellon Foundation, interns work for two years to further the goals of the Arts Material Collection and Study Center. The mission of this center is to acquire and document materials used by artists, such as paints, varnishes, grounds, mediums, tools, and trade literature.
Applicants can be international or US citizens. They must have an undergraduate degree in studio art and a minor or substantial course work in art history. Strong candidates are familiar with art media and database software.
Two-year internship appointment with an annual stipend of over $20,000, health insurance coverage, and other employee benefits.
