The library formerly known as the Minneapolis Public Library has some exhibit internships available. They’re unpaid, and you have to be a student–but you get to work with extremely nice people in a lovely building with great collections. My suggestion for a project: convince the county library board to rename the Central Library the Countryman Branch.
Depending on the Intern’s background and skills, projects that the Intern may work on are:
– Create a scale model of the Cargill Gallery and furnishings
– Update the community library exhibit spaces web page to include the Southeast Library
– Alexander Hamilton exhibit: work with library staff to research and gather related materials from our collection, design display for materials in gallery vitrines, write and make labels; exhibit opens late August
– Assist with de-installation of Sesquicentennial exhibit mid-August and assist with summer exhibit programs June and July
Update: I hate the new wordpress admin interface.
