The InLiquid Internship Program will offer the experience of working in a non-profit arts organization and fine art gallery. Internships are designed primarily for undergraduate and graduate students, although open to anyone with a strong desire and commitment. All interns will gain useful insight cross-departments and be exposed to many the many facets of our team.
Interns will work closely with InLiquid staff and will be involved with regular activities as well as special projects as needed. Internships are non-paid positions; academic credit may be received depending on the intern’s college program. Internships are available year-round.
The Exhibition and Membership intern will work under the supervision of the Exhibition Managers. They will assist with updating and creating artist membership pages on our website; occasionally assisting with aspects of our membership campaigns; researching artists for exhibitions and proposals; photographing exhibitions; assisting with and leading on some installations and de-installations of exhibitions; and assistance with publicity and press release distribution for exhibitions. Special exhibition and curatorial projects are possible as well, depending on the needs of the organization and interests and skills of the intern.
Students will be exposed to, and integrally involved in, many facets of a nonprofit visual arts organization. Interns will have a unique opportunity to gain expertise in web publication and exhibition coordination and will develop an in-depth, insider’s knowledge of a large and vibrant visual arts community. The ideal candidate will be web-savvy and have a strong interest in contemporary visual arts or art history; strong writing skills; keen eye for detail; some art handling experience (preferred); and a willingness to learn. Experience in Microsoft Office a must; some photography skills, Photoshop, WordPress, and/or basic HTML is a plus, but not essential. This position involves a 3 to 6-month commitment, 10 to 15 hours a week. Hours and days of the week are flexible.
