The Visual Arts Center of New Jersey offers an Arts Internship opportunity for students interested in gaining hands-on experience with an accredited arts organization. The Art Center is a dynamic and collaborative institution where departments are constantly working together to achieve our mission of bringing art and people together. This unique internship allows students to work in a variety of departments including the Studio School, Programs, Curatorial, Fundraising and Special Events, Marketing and Communications, and Membership. Interns will be working with our staff as well as interacting with artists, art instructors, volunteers, trustees, and other arts-oriented professionals. This internship will provide students with a broad understanding of how an art institution functions.

Responsibilities might include assisting with exhibition preparation for our four on-site gallery spaces and our two off-site gallery spaces, assisting with public programs including the popular Thursday Evening Salon Series, providing support for our state of the art Studio School and Kids Summer Art Camp, and participating in fundraising events such as our spring fundraiser For Art’s Sake.

Applicants must have excellent writing and communication skills, strong organizational skills and attention to detail, and the ability to work independently. Knowledge of or passion for the visual arts preferred. Essential computer skills include Microsoft Word, Excel, and Outlook.
