Interested in working in a museum? There are local and national opportunities coming up at the Springville Museum of Art and the National Gallery.
Application Deadline: November 13
The Springville Museum of Art is the oldest museum for visual art in the state, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization, and a key promoter and contributor to the arts in Utah. We display over 15 exhibitions annually. SMA is the permanent home of an impressive collection of 150 years of Utah fine art, twentieth century Russian-Soviet Socialist Realism, and American Realist art. The artwork is displayed throughout 29 galleries in this 45,000 square foot facility as well as in a beautiful outdoor sculpture garden, all constructed in Spanish Colonial Revival style architecture.
As part of the POPS (Professional Outreach Program to Schools), the museum is home for visual art educational outreach programs to Utah schools. In addition, SMA hosts community events, concerts and recitals, an art festival, and lecture series. Docent tours are arranged throughout the year. The museum is also available for rentals for private events.
SMA offers multiple internships in their curatorial, education, and marketing/communications areas. You should apply by November 13 at smofa.org’s Support page. In addition to the online application, you should send a cover letter, resume, list of references, and a 1-2 page writing sample to firstname.lastname@example.org.
