621 Gallery Internship Applications Open

Published July 19, 2017

621 Gallery is now accepting internship applications for upcoming semesters.

621 is a nonprofit arts exhibition and programs space located in Railroad Square Art Park in a former 1940’s lumber warehouse. The

original gallery space was established in 1981, was incorporated as a nonprofit organization in 1989, and has existed through the directorship and management of volunteers and interns.

The gallery has an ongoing internship program through which interns learn the inner workings of a non-profit arts space and work closely with artists, presenters, and K-12 students throughout the exhibition and program season.

The 621 Gallery Internship Program provides “real world” work & learning experiences for college students in related fields of study, such as arts administration, art education, art history, marketing, hospitality, communications, museum studies, and graphic design. Working under the supervision of the Executive Director, Dr. Jan DeCosmo, interns will assist with the daily tasks that culminate in the gallery’s exhibitions, programs and special events. The Gallery offers the chance for students to build their resumes and receive letters of recommendation at the completion of a successful Internship Program.
