Volunteering is an awesome way to get involved with More Art’s art projects that take place in public spaces across NYC. Interested candidates should send a letter of interest and a resume to: email@example.com.
Interns work closely with More Art staff to produce innovative public art projects, cultural events, and educational programs. All internships are unpaid, but stipends for work-related transportation and lunch will be provided. We are also happy to work with students who would like to complete an internship for school credit. We make every effort to tailor internship experiences to fit an intern’s skills and interests. There may be times when we ask for help with other projects going on in the office if more hands and assistance are needed. Internships are available for both students (undergraduate and graduate) and individuals who are interested in gaining more experience in public arts administration.
