1 year, 20 hours per week, $10/hour

Black Mountain College Museum + Arts Center (BMCM+AC) seeks a part-time Museum Intern to provide staff support in our downtown Asheville gallery spaces in conjunction with our grant-funded expansion project.

Black Mountain College’s pedagogical influence casts a long shadow because of its educators’ focus on collaboration between disciplines, work within and for the community as a learning experience, and design and the arts as instrumental in a liberal arts education. Interns who complete this program should come away with an understanding of the day-to-day functions of a nonprofit museum, a familiarity with the history and legacy of Black Mountain College, and a deeper understanding of the communities and movements that influenced and were influenced by the College, including but not limited to the Bauhaus, Abstract Expressionism, and the Black Mountain School of Poets.

The ideal candidate will possess strong organizational, technical, multitasking, and communication skills, a collaborative spirit, an interest in pursuing a career in museums or nonprofits, and a deep curiosity about the history and legacy of Black Mountain College.

  • Staff support in both our 56 Broadway and 67 Broadway spaces, including general administrative tasks, interfacing with visitors and tracking visitor numbers, website maintenance, social media marketing, handling phone traffic, and special events support.
  • Assistance with exhibition installation and de-installation.
  • Special projects which may include community engagement activities, digital content creation, collection cataloging and digitization, graphic design, exhibition research and documentation, and other tasks related to our physical expansion.

BMCM+AC’s new Museum Internship Program will emulate BMC’s experiential approach to learning by focusing each internship around a selected multimedia or visitor engagement project, utilizing either BMCM+AC’s oral history archives or the larger collection. While interns will be allowed a choice of project and creative leeway in the design or curation of their projects, they will receive close guidance in project management, outreach methodology, use of new media, and design strategies.

Degree completed or in-progress in Art, Art History, History, English, Philosophy, Communications, Graphic Design, Computer Science, Museum Studies, Library and Information Sciences, or a related field required. Ideal candidates will be reliable and prompt, and will possess proficiency in Microsoft Office, Adobe Creative Suite, A/V editing, and social media platforms. Applicants must be able to lift/push/pull 25lbs or more, climb ladders, and operate basic tools and installation equipment. Interns will have regularly scheduled hours, but flexibility is appreciated, and weekend and evening availability are required.
