Artists For Humanity -- Exhibitions Assistant

Please see instructions on how to apply at the bottom of this page.

In collaboration with the Exhibitions Manager, the intern will coordinate AFH's internal exhibition space. They will be provided dedicated wall spaces to curate select artwork as their project portion of their internship. They will be guided through, from start to finish, the steps involved in the execution of the exhibitions. Additionally, the intern will shadow the Exhibition Manager on various other projects. AFH's teens work longer hours during the summer, which greatly reduces the time for Painting Mentors to assist with exhibitions and art sales' prep work. The intern will provide an invaluable role in filling this gap by assisting the Exhibitions Manager.

This position is ideal for a candidate studying/interested in museum studies or a specialized, relevant subject, such as art history or the visual arts. The intern should possess strong writing and communication skills. The intern should also be collaborative, creative, a fast learner, self-directed, detailed oriented, and task focused. Proficiency in MS Office and experience with Adobe Photoshop, Illustrator, and InDesign preferred.

Projects include:
- Maintaining AFH's digital collections catalogue
- Work with AFH sales managers to promote sales of pieces from AFH's collection
- Curate selection for AFH's 3rd floor gallery
- Archive projects and work to ensure proper gallery implementation
