Magazzino Italian Art Foundation seeks qualified applicants for its Winter 2023 paid internship program.
This internship is a part-time, paid, twelve-week session for undergraduate juniors and seniors. The internship will take place weekly on Fridays, Saturdays, and Sundays, 10am-5pm, with some room for flexibility. It offers practical training and professional development that connects interns with Magazzino staff and art. A three-month commitment is expected. This is a unique opportunity for students interested in pursuing a career in the art field.
Intern responsibilities include research, administrative tasks, maintaining the exhibition space, and enhancing the visitor experience. Interns are the first point of contact for visitors and provide an introduction to Magazzino by fielding questions and creating a positive experience. Strong communication skills are essential as interns will interact with all Magazzino guests and visitors. Knowledge of Italian language is strongly recommended in order to assist with translations and meet our visitors from Italy, as needed. Working extended hours for events is mandatory.
Applicants must show a strong interest in art related subjects, demonstrate excellent communication skills and a positive attitude, be open to receiving direction, have great attention to detail, and have a flexible schedule, including weekends. Along the course of the internship, knowledge of Magazzino’s mission and artworks is expected.

Located in Cold Spring, New York, Magazzino Italian Art is a museum and research center dedicated to advancing scholarship and public appreciation of postwar and contemporary Italian art in the United States. The nonprofit museum serves as an advocate for Italian artists as it celebrates the range of their creative practices from Arte Povera to the present.
