VOLUNTEER & INTERNSHIP OPPORTUNITIES

Internship – The Slater Memorial Museum of Norwich Free Academy is accepting letters of interest from undergraduate and graduate college students to engage in internships related to exhibitions, archives and collections management. Of particular interest to art, history and art history students may be the opportunity to work on an exhibition to be completed fall 2018 on the Norwich artist Ellis Walter Ruley (1882-1959). Ruley was considered an outsider artist whose work is now recognized among scholars and collectors. The exhibition will feature his work, but focus primarily on the community’s rediscovery of and renewed interest in Ruley. Recent efforts include creating a public park at the location of his homesite. The opportunity may also be of particular interest to young scholars because Curator and Executive Director of the Amistad Center at the Wadsworth Atheneum, Wm. Frank Mitchell, PhD, will be guest curating the project. The internship may commence as early as the spring semester and include the summer. There may be an opportunity for more than one intern and during different time frames (spring or summer 2018).  Contact Vivian Zoe at zoev@nfaschool.org.
Deadline:  April 15, 2018

Lyman Allyn Art Museum in New London is seeking enthusiastic individuals interested in art, art history, American history, and public relations to join our Volunteer Docent Program. Docents play an important role in leading museum tours for children and adults, greeting the public, and engaging visitors in hands-on art activities.

All new docents will receive extensive training in New London, regional, and the Museum’s history, our permanent and special exhibitions, as well as a foundation for leading tours for all ages. To ensure that both the Museum and docents make the most of the training, we ask for a two (2) year commitment, attendance in bi-monthly meetings from September through June, and a minimum of 12 hours of service each year. All active docents will be eligible for Docent Benefits.  Bi-lingual, especially Spanish, is a plus but is not required. A history with art, children and/or the public is a bonus.
