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. Two primary roles of the intern ship are 1) Courses & Program Management (events, classes, workshops) and 2) Artist Liason & Gift Shop Management. 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.
