Internships are offered by the Art Institute's many departments throughout the year and enable students to gain first-hand experience in their areas of interest or study.
Interns, working under the guidance of curators or department heads, assist in routine departmental work that ranges from special projects and research to clerical support. Interns are undergraduate or graduate students or recent college graduates. A major in art history or fine art is not essential. Internships vary from department to department; a majority of internships are offered unpaid or for academic credit. Students are responsible for making appropriate arrangements with their schools to receive credit for internships. Hours vary and are flexible; however, a minimum of 14 hours per week is generally expected. View a list of currently available internships.

11 hours 59 min ago The Art Institute of Chicago Still a Paris Street, but a brighter day… ARTicle takes a closer look at our conservation team's dramatic transformation of Paris Street; Rainy Day.
1 day 11 hours ago The Art Institute of Chicago Clyfford Still emerged in the 1940s as one of the most radical of the American Abstract Expressionists. Like his peers Mark Rothko and Barnett Newman, Still's canvases presented a sheer wall of paint dominated by monumental expanses of intense color. He considered his grand abstractions to be expressions of his identity and records of his emotional life.
If Clyfford Still's Untitled, 1958 is one of your favorite American works of art, share it with the country by voting for it to be displayed on billboards nationwide. #ArtEverywhereUS
