Windgate Museum Internship at SAC Boston

Since our founding in 1897, The Society of Arts and Crafts has been committed to supporting American craftspeople and educating the public about the power of craft. We were the first crafts non-profit established in the US, and continue to fulfill this mission today through our programs: exhibitions; public programs (including an artist-in-residence); a marketplace gallery; and twice-annual show, CraftBoston. Since the end of the 19th century, we have curated exhibitions of fine contemporary craft and made that work available free to the public.

The Curator is preparing a historical exhibition (working title: Society Through the Centuries) which responds to the Society's history from the 1940s to the 1990s. The historical period of the Society, from 1897 to the 1920s, is well known. Less so are our activities from the second half of the 20th century, an important time in studio craft. Slated for Fall of 2019, this exhibition will focus on the second half of the 20th century from the rise of the studio craft movement to the millennium.

The Intern will work directly with Luiza deCamargo, Associate Curator, in order to provide support for Society Through the Centuries while learning the ins-and-outs of developing research oriented exhibitions in a small non-profit.
