Rochester Art Center is committed to art education and welcomes internship applications on a rolling basis.

Our internship program is dynamic and inclusive allowing interns to develop an extensive understanding of the operation of a non-profit contemporary art organization.

RAC offers remote and in-person internships in each of our departments – administration, curatorial, development, education, events, facility, marketing, and visitor services. Based on a personal interview, we work with applicants to determine where they best fit, though many times interns work cross-departmentally.

Internships – which are an unpaid position– can be applied for academic credit at the high school, college, and graduate level. RAC requires a minimum commitment of five hours per week to insure interns are receiving a complete experiential education.

To apply, contact Zoe Cinel, Internship Coordinator at Include a CV or resume and a short description of your motivation and interest in your email.
