Summer 2023

Museum Internship Program

The Chrysler Museum welcomes ambitious future museum professionals for experiential learning over the summer. Each intern is placed in a specific department for the opportunity to delve deeply into projects associated with their mentor. Interns also participate in weekly discussions and information sessions to learn more broadly about the Chrysler Museum and the larger museum field.

The summer 2023 internship program will run from May 30–August 4. The typical schedule is Tuesday–Friday from 9 a.m.–4 p.m. Individual arrangements may be made with specific departments to accommodate other commitments. Some departments may request an altered schedule for special events or projects.

Chrysler Museum interns will receive a $2,000 stipend.

If you are interested in joining the summer 2023 cohort, please review the application process below. All application materials are due by Sunday, February 26 at 11:59 p.m. Late applications will not be accepted. Interviews with selected candidates will occur throughout March. Applicants will be notified of their status by Friday, March 31, at 5 p.m.

To submit an application, please complete the form below. You will need to upload a current resume/CV and cover letter. Your cover letter should indicate the two departments with which you most want to work and your qualifications for filling those positions. The letter of recommendation should be sent by email directly from the recommender to Emily Shield.

If you have any questions about the internship program or application process, please contact Emily Shield, Public Programs Coordinator, at eshield@chrysler.org.

We offer internships in a wide variety of departments across the Museum.

Departments Seeking Interns

Communications

The Communications Department is responsible for conveying information to the local community and the broader Museum audience. The Communications intern will work with staff to ensure consistent delivery of the Chrysler Museum’s communication strategies. Projects will include social media audits, writing press releases, drafting weekly emails, as well as other supporting work for the department.

The ideal candidate has completed some media planning or integrated marketing communications coursework. They are knowledgeable of marketing concepts, emerging technologies, and social media platforms. Desired experience with Adobe Creative Suite, WordPress, writing, and editing are a plus.

Curatorial – Modern and Contemporary

The Curatorial Department works with the Museum’s permanent collection and develops special exhibitions. The curatorial intern will conduct original research on Norfolk’s urban renewal project of the 1960s for a proposed reinstallation of the McKinnon contemporary galleries. Additional projects will include database updates, research, and participating in planning meetings.

The ideal candidate has an interest in Norfolk’s history and an ability to develop critical assessments of archival material. This intern should have completed an undergraduate degree in Art History, a sense of self-direction, and strong research skills.

Development

The Development Department is responsible for the Museum’s fundraising efforts (including donations, campaigns, and memberships) and maintains a strong connection with members of all levels. The intern for the Development Department will work on cataloging event photos, sourcing materials to include in stewardship plans, and preparing for member events.

The ideal candidate will have a passion for non-profit work, strong interpersonal communication skills, and be proficient in the use of multiple forms of technology. The Development Internship is open to students at any stage of their academic career and will be a beneficial learning opportunity for students with a variety of academic specializations.

Education Department – Public Programs

The Education Department is responsible for supporting learning and creativity for all of the Museum’s audiences. Public Programs offer avenues for visitors to engage with the Museum and the art through making, playing, listening, and discussing. The primary projects will include creating plans for our Tickle My Ears monthly program, assisting with two summer Family Days, and brainstorming upcoming adult programs.

The ideal candidate will be passionate about art and learning, willing to think outside the box, and able to work on multiple projects simultaneously. The intern should be well-organized, comfortable talking to community partners and visitors, and able to work independently. The intern will need to work between long-term planning as well as the immediate implementation of programming.
