I Live Far From A Major City, How Can I Find A Quality Internship?
Rob Alvarez a Museum Collection Manager for over 4 years shares his thoughts on the matter:
Alot depends on that person’s situation. If in school, try to find a studio, gallery, or even another artist who needs an assistant or might be willing to offer credits.
Another thing I have learned in this field is that you have to go where the jobs are, even if that means moving temporarily to get the experience you need.
There are many websites out there for careers in the arts, and specifically for museums check out the American Association of Museums Career website, or the New York Fine Arts (NYFA.org) website, they post TONS of internships both paid and unpaid for galleries, photographers, studios, etc.
Key thought if you’re in the middle of nowhere is to expand your search horizons beyond your own neighborhood.
