Learn about aspects of running an arts organization from curating, press, marketing, event planning, exhibition hanging, gallery management and more. Because the Wassaic Project is a small, young organization, interns have a unique opportunity to contribute to the long-term identity of the organization and take on substantial responsibility. Interns’ responsibilities will be primarily in one of three categories: Education, Development or Programming.

Education Internship
Education Interns will have the unique opportunity of contributing to the development of the Wassaic Project’s expanding education programming, which connects the artists and dynamic creative resources at the Project to the greater Dutchess County and Northwest Connecticut community.

Education Interns should have a background or specific interest in museum/art education.

Development Internship
Development interns will be involved in three of our major fundraisers: our annual appeal, our Winter Benefit in New York City and the sale of our benefit print. This position is ideal for someone looking to gain valuable skills applicable at all non-profits and arts organizations as well as artists interested in learning about the inner workings of special events and art sales.

Tasks will include:
- Event planning for our Winter Benefit in NYC, including coordinating with participating artists
- Creating targeted mailing lists and reaching out to potential donors
- Researching and drafting grants and proposals that highlight our unique programming

Programming Internship
Programming Interns will see the process of our artist-in-residence application review and our exhibition open call first hand. Interns will lay the groundwork for all of our summer programming including our Summer Exhibition, Open Studios and Summer Festival.

Tasks will include:
- Helping to coordinate the Summer Exhibition open call and be involved in the review of hundreds of emerging artists
- Helping to plan summer programming for our exhibition and our residency program in Wassaic

The Wassaic Project is an artist-run, multidisciplinary arts organization based in Wassaic, NY. We facilitate artists, performers, and participants to exhibit, perform, discuss, and connect with art, music, each other, our unique site, and the surrounding community. Artists-in-residence are encouraged to experiment with new ways of working that we share and celebrate during our public programs. Visitors to the Wassaic Project are inspired to see art in a new way in this unique and welcoming setting.

The Wassaic Project's activities include a year-round artist and musician residency, an annual summer festival, and a series of public programs throughout the year including open studios. We also offer studio visits/critiques for artists involved with the organization by guest curators and visiting artists, and artist workshops with community members.

In the five years the Wassaic Project has been operating, we have grown our annual summer festival attendance from 500 to 4,000; developed the exhibitions program which includes 3 or more exhibitions per year in over 8,000 square feet of gallery space; launched the guest curator program which has worked with 21 curators in 4 years; developed the education program and started collaborating with local school systems for the 2012-2013 school year; and seamlessly integrated the Wassaic Project into the community and architecture of Wassaic, NY. The Wassaic Project has created collaborative programming with MASS MoCA, Recession Arts, the Invisible Dog, Galapagos Art Space, New Amsterdam Records, The Aldrich Museum, Allegra Laviola Gallery, Columbia University, the New School, and CUNY Hostos.

Internship Opportunity

 For students interested in any aspect of the magazine world this is a really great opportunity and it is close to Savannah.

Hilton Head Monthly Magazine is looking for photography interns who are bursting with new ideas. Come join our small but fun-loving crew and see the creative process from start to finish. You'll be in the trenches with us as we dream up the best ways to present and illustrate our storyboard, be on-set for photoshoots, and be given the tools you need to express yourself creatively.

The gist of it:

Interns must supply own equipment (when we said you'd be given the tools, we meant more figurative tools).

We're really flexible on hours, so you can come in when you want. We only ask that when you come in, come in to work. (We like to screw around on Facebook, too, we just don't do it all day).

We will include you in the process starting with the initial editorial meeting, and will welcome your input on photography and art direction. Any wild hairs you get in terms of shooting something for publication will be fair game. We rarely say no to pitches, so long as there is passion behind them.

We have really, really good coffee (the owners of the company are European).

As mentioned we are a small staff. Our art department consists of one full-time art director. We work very closely with several area photographers, though, and opportunities to work one-on-one with them abound.

Those interested can email

Web Design Course

After speaking with alumni over the past year many of them emphasized the importance of the Web Design course they took with Liz Darling while being a student. I highly recommend this class to all students. These are important skills to learn not just for your own work but because of the  lack of reasonable and reliable web designers out there in the world.
