Since 1892 the mission of the Portland Art Museum is to engage the public with art and film of enduring quality, to facilitate dialogue with diverse audiences, and to collect, preserve and educate for the enrichment of present and future generations.Internships are an invaluable resource for the Portland Art Museum. Along with helping to ease the workload of Museum staff, interns gain knowledge and experience that will advance their own careers. If you are a current student and wish to inquire of current internship opportunities with the Museum, please follow this process.
Interested applicants must meet Museum-wide guidelines as well as those specific to their department of interest. Applicants may be undergraduate or graduate students as is appropriate to the conditions of specific internships. It is not compulsory for interns to have an art/art history major, although departments may individualize their requirements according to their needs. Internships can be available throughout the year with application deadlines and internship start dates determined by individual departments. Student internships are unpaid opportunities.
Due to the high volume of interest please understand that the Museum is unable to respond to each internship application. If Human Resources is able to find a match within the Museum, you will be contacted directly. We appreciate your understanding and hope you continue to experience the power of art.
