Internship
1 at $3,000

 

The first endowed Opportunities Fund recently established by the Liu Shiming Art Foundation in memory of the celebrated Chinese sculptor Liu Shiming, this fund will provide a Macaulay student with a $3,000 grant for an in-person and virtual internship at the Godwin-Ternbach Museum at Queens College.

This internship, supervised by Museum co-directors Maria Pio and Louise Weinberg, will include conducting research, giving a presentation, and assisting with the preparation for, and installation of, an exhibition featuring Liu Shiming’s work in summer 2022.  The internship timeframe is June 1-July 22, 2022.  This will be a remarkable opportunity for students interested in Chinese art and culture as well as museum education, collections, and exhibitions.

Applicants must submit a one-page cover letter and resume to be considered for this opportunity.

The Godwin-Ternbach Museum (GTM) is the only fine arts museum in the CUNY system. Founded in 1981, the museum organizes exhibitions and programs of contemporary and historical significance for the diverse audiences of Queens and the metropolitan region—students, faculty and public alike. It houses nearly 7,000 works that date from ancient to modern times, which represent cultures from around the world. Lectures, symposia, gallery talks, workshops, and tours, print and online catalogues illuminate the art on view.
