Job Summary:

Research on the demographics of art museum staff by the Mellon Foundation in 2015 highlighted that while 38% of Americans were Asian, Black, Hispanic, or multiracial, only 16% of art museum leadership positions were held by people with those backgrounds. A subsequent report released in 2019 showed that while there was an improvement, still only 20% of art museum leadership positions were held by Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC). The Association of Art Museum Directors Intern is considered the first phase in a series of steps to create a sustainable pathway in building diverse pipelines that ensure diverse slates of BIPOC students have successful careers in art museums.

The Association of Art Museum Directors Intern at the Rollins Museum of Art (RMA) is a twelve-week, paid opportunity for undergraduate students interested in gaining professional experience in a museum setting. The internship is intended to encourage those from historically marginalized communities within the field to pursue an art museum career.

About Rollins Museum of Art:

The Rollins Museum of Art features rotating exhibitions, ongoing programs, and an extensive permanent collection of approximately 6,000 objects that spans centuries, from examples of ancient art and artifacts to contemporary art. Open to the public year-round, its holdings include the only European Old Master paintings in the Orlando area, a sizeable American art collection, and a forward-thinking contemporary collection on view both at the Museum and The Alfond Inn at Rollins. In 1981, the museum became Florida’s first accredited college museum by the American Association of Museums (currently the American Alliance of Museums) and continues in 2022 as one of only four AAM-accredited museums in greater Orlando.

The Association of Art Museum Directors is the premier professional organization for art museum directors from the United States, Canada, and Mexico. AAMD advances the profession by cultivating leadership capabilities of directors, advocating for the field, and fostering excellence in art museums. An agile, issues-driven organization, AAMD has three desired outcomes: engagement, leadership, and shared learning. For summer 2023, AAMD is sponsoring internships at ten member institutions in North America.
