Digital Education and Curatorial Intern

Cleveland Clinic Foundation -- Digital Education and Curatorial Intern

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

The main project will focus on updating and creating content for several digital educational platforms related to the contemporary art collection at Cleveland Clinic. The first is AR+, a new digital platform that will feature augmented reality, scanning capabilities of art in the collection, videos and information about the artists and architecture of Cleveland Clinic. The AR+ app launches this spring, with additional content being created and uploaded throughout the summer. The intern will work on developing and editing content with the Senior Curator and Curatorial Fellow for the second phase of the project launch. In conjunction with AR+, the intern will write didactic information about the art in the collection, with the dual purpose that the content can be used for wall labels and for the digital platform. In addition, the intern will work on gathering audio content and artist permissions for image reproduction for images and content used in the AR+ app, as well as the Guide By Cell phone tour. With the Graphic Designer, they will help with designing a new wall label format for artworks included in the app and cell phone tour. We will also need the intern’s help with converting existing Acoustiguide MP3s for use in the AR+ and and Guide By Cell.
