Art.Science.Gallery. LLC offers a 14-week internship program for students and young professionals interested in gaining experience in the arts and science. Art.Science.Gallery. is an art gallery and science communication space featuring science-related art in Austin, Texas. We are a 100% local, woman-owned small business that collaborates with artists, scientists and other organizations to produce art exhibitions of science-related art. We are also developing a series of professional development workshops for scientists in science communication and data visualization as well as a curriculum of fun, hands-on Art.Science.Labs. for the public. In addition, Art.Science.Gallery. offers consulting services in curriculum design, custom exhibitions, science outreach events and more.

Interns will work with owner/director of Art.Science.Gallery. Dr. Hayley Gillespie to develop a course of internship activities based on the intern’s interests and skill set. Three internship opportunities are available 1) Courses & Program Management (events, classes, workshops) and 2) Artist Liason & Gift Shop Management and 3) Communications (editing and producing weekly newsletter and social media). All interns also gain experience in planning and installing art exhibits, public relations and marketing. The internships will involve a weekly gallery meeting to discuss and evaluate the agreed upon goals of the internship experience. There are two options for the 14-week internships: a 5 hour per week volunteer position or 10 hour per week internship. The 10 hour per week internship is eligible for a $500 travel expense stipend.
