This is an unpaid internship and the
applicant must be receiving academic credit to be considered. Exact start and
end dates are flexible, but the internship should be completed roughly in the
June–August 2019 range.
All candidates must be able to work onsite at the Harvard Art Museums.
Please note that the primary location for this position is at the museums’
Somerville facility, a short walk from the Sullivan Square T station. However,
many assignments will require the intern to spend time at the Harvard Art
Museums’ main facility at 32 Quincy Street in Cambridge, and there is
flexibility in scheduling those occasions. Hourly shuttle service is provided
between the Somerville facility and the Harvard Art Museums, with the shuttle
stop located on the corner of Prescott Street and Broadway in Cambridge. There
is a parking lot (free) at the Somerville location for those who drive; there
are also bicycle racks available. More details are available here.
The Harvard Art Museums — the Fogg Museum, Busch Reisinger
Museum, and Arthur M. Sackler Museum — are dedicated to advancing and
supporting learning at Harvard University, in the local community, and around
the world. The museums have played a leading role in the development of art
history, conservation, and conservation science, and in the evolution of the
art museum as an institution. Through research, teaching, professional
training, and public education, the museums strive to advance the understanding
and appreciation of art. Programs encourage close looking at original works of
art, collaboration with campus and community partners, and the production of
new scholarship. For more information, please visit our website at harvardartmuseums.org.
