Arts Administration Internship
Franconia Sculpture Park
Applications accepted on a rolling basis

Franconia Sculpture Park's Arts Administration Internship provides 'hands-on' immersion in the daily operations of a progressive arts organization located in the scenic St. Croix River Valley, 45 miles NE of Minneapolis/St. Paul, MN, USA. Franconia provides residence and workspace to emerging and established artists in a 43-acre sculpture park.  There are two different types of administrative interns. Program interns will support Franconia’s education & public programing. The Development intern will work directly with the development manager to support fundraising campaigns. Both interns work closely with Franconia’s staff so interns have a rare opportunity to be immersed in many types of projects and work experiences.

This type of internship is best suited for those interested in exploring public art, museum studies, arts administration, or nonprofit management careers. Primary responsibilities include assisting staff with day-to-day operations of the artist and education programs and may include helping with research; social networking outreach; marketing and publicity; graphic/web design; photography; database management; and assisting with activities that help promote Franconia and enhance public participation.
Arts Administration Internships are unpaid and last two to four months. This internship is flexible and can be scheduled to accommodate other commitments and varying time frames. We require a commitment of at least 16 hours a week for locally based interns who commute to Franconia. Interns who stay in residence at Franconia (free room & board) contribute at least 35 hours per week.  Franconia agrees to work with the intern to fulfill any necessary academic requirements and address any identified learning goals/objectives.  For complete details and application instructions, visit Franconia's website: http://www.franconia.org/artsadmin.html
