Summer Academy

The Summer Academy is a one-week immersion program that provides undergraduate students with behind-the-scenes access to the Art Institute. Each summer, 15 students are exposed to career paths in the arts by participating in museum tours, field trips to local arts organizations, workshops, and networking events with museum professionals. Upon completion of the Summer Academy—and following a short application process—two participants are selected for the two-year Curatorial Fellowship.
