Join a team of creative thinkers passionate about the visual arts, teaching, and learning.
During the 9-week program, each student will work 30 hours a week at an arts institution in the Berkshires (WCMA, the Clark Art Institute, Chesterwood, MASS MoCA, or the Stockbridge Mission House). Students will be assigned a department and supervisor who will help guide and train the student on their work. Positions will be geared towards student interest and will be chosen before the start of the summer program.
Beyond the 30-hour work week, the cohort of students will participate in a variety of professional development opportunities, hands-on workshops, conversations about museum practice, networking opportunities with alumni and young professionals, outings around the Berkshires, and a 2-3 day trip to New York City or Boston.
• $510/ week, paid bi-weekly through the college
• 9-week commitment from June 12–August 14, 2022
• Students will live in college dorms. Housing costs are covered by the college, but are taxable.

• Students will work 30 hours a week at a designated art museum with a direct supervisor
• Weekly professional development opportunities and workshops with alumni and arts leaders

By the end of the nine-week program, students will have a greater understanding of the Berkshires as a visual arts hub, be deeply connected to other Williams students who are passionate about the visual arts, and learn from arts leaders broadly about the field.
