The Gibbes Museum of Art offers part-time internships throughout the year for college students and recent graduates interested in a career in the arts. Students may apply to assist specific departments, depending on their experiences and interests in the museum field. Interns will develop skills through projects, which may include promotion and publicity efforts for museum exhibitions and programs, exhibition planning, collections management, installations, office support, and special events. Interns may also be directly involved in assisting with the development of interpretive public programs that serve a variety of audiences. Most internship opportunities are unpaid, however students may be eligible to earn college credit and other museum benefits.
Applicants must have completed at least one year of college; be currently enrolled in a college/university or have earned an undergraduate degree no more than one year prior to the start of the internship.

The Gibbes Museum of Art is also seeking engaging individuals with a passion for education and the arts to join our team of Museum educators. We are committed to diversity, equity, and equality and encourage applicants of all backgrounds. Working with the permanent collection and temporary exhibitions, Museum Educators make critical connections between the works of art and SC curriculum standards for K–12 visitors.
