We are pleased to announce the Summer Graduate Internships for 2007 at The John and Mable Ringling Museum of Art.  The Ringling Museum, located in Sarasota, Florida, provides a high quality, practical work experience for current graduate students interested in a career in the museum field.  The Ringling Museum is comprised of three museums on a 66-acre estate located on Sarasota Bay and includes an internationally recognized art collection, the Ringling mansion, Cà d’Zan, and Circus Museum.  Beginning in January, 2006, a series of new buildings began opening, which includes the Circus Museum’s Tibbals Learning Center celebrating the Circus, a Visitors Pavilion featuring the reinstalled Historic Asolo Theater, new art galleries, and an education center.  The art library of 65,000 volumes, one of the largest art museum libraries in the southeast, is moving into expansive new quarters in January 2007.


The 2007 internships will begin on June 15, 2007 and end on August 9, 2007, with a mandatory orientation on June 14, 2007.  During this eight-week period a total stipend of $3,600 will be paid.  The Museum will assist the interns in obtaining housing, if requested.  The cost of housing and meals will be the responsibility of the intern.  Each intern will be assigned to a specific area of museum operations based on their choice of an internship indicated on their application.  Approximately half of the experience will focus on a pre-determined project that will add not only value to the museum, but also will be an invaluable tool for a future career.  Additionally intern group experiences will be scheduled to provide hands on museum experience that will give an overview of museum operations.
