The McMullan Family Foundation Summer Intensive 

The McMullan Family Foundation Summer Intensive is a weeklong program exposing undergraduate students to museum professions through workshops, behind-the-scenes tours, field trips, and networking events.

The 2022 program focuses on the theme of “The Museum Space,” which considers the museum’s relationship to real and imagined environments, both within and outside of its physical footprint. This year’s program will run June 13–18.

Please note that we are keeping an eye on the current COVID-19 situation and will adjust to a virtual format if necessary. 

Students who complete the summer intensive are eligible to apply for a two-year fellowship at the museum, a part-time opportunity to pursue alongside their academic programs.

The application for the 2022 McMullan Family Foundation Summer Intensive is now closed.

The McMullan Family Foundation Summer Intensive and the McMullan Art Leadership Initiative are supported by the James and Madeleine McMullan Foundation.
