Our Internship and Volunteer Program has been in place for thirteen years, offering students and print enthusiasts a wide range of experience in our busy administrative office. This is an excellent opportunity for those with an interest in printmaking or arts administration.

Since IPCNY is continuously growing and progressing, internship responsibilities evolve with the organization's needs. Some of the responsibilities are administrative, while others are project oriented. This offers a broad range of experiences at an exciting time in the life of this new institution. Over the course of the internship, students are presented with a "global view" of the print world as well as an in-depth view of the operations of a multi-faceted non-profit art organization and gallery space. IPCNY's location in Chelsea, allows the opportunity for exposure to neighborhood galleries as well as the city's unparalleled wealth of art resources.

Interns will assist the Exhibitions Coordinator with the planning and execution of the New Prints Program--an ongoing series of juried installations of contemporary prints in our Chelsea gallery. Duties include registration and presenting of digital entries, research, loan agreements, registration of artwork, conditions reports, installation and documentation, and press relations. Four installations are organized each season.  Interns will also work closely with IPCNY’s Marketing and Public Programming Manager, assisting the Director with membership development, fundraising, marketing, press relations, events planning, our Annual Spring Benefit, and the planning of future shows for touring and in our exhibition space. Interns will assist in managing the organization’s database, website, and information center.
