MOA Recruiting for Paid Summer Art Internship

Application deadline: Friday April 10, 2015

Program dates: June 15 - August 10, 2015

Museum of Outdoor Arts (MOA) is recruiting undergraduate and high school senior level interns for its Design and Build Summer Art Program. Interns will work in a professional studio environment with artist in residence, Cory Gilstrap to create works for an exhibition at MOA's indoor gallery. Participants will be awarded a $1,500 stipend and college credit may also be available.

Interested candidates should view for detailed information about the program and application instructions. The application deadline is April 10, 2015 and the program dates are June 15- August 10, M - F 9:30am-5pm.

Since 1991, MOA's Design and Build program has provided an opportunity for young artists, students and creative minds to express their creativity in collaborative public art and gallery exhibition projects. Assisted by professional artists in residence, Design and Build participants produce exciting and original site-specific art works for public spaces in the Denver metro area and MOA's indoor galleries. Interns find creative solutions to practical challenges as they master the skills to transform their creative ideas into finished pieces.

The program generates temporary public art/exhibitions and offers lessons in collaborative teamwork, problem-solving and aesthetic and technical considerations. From concept to installation, students must consider all elements of the public art process, including environmental concern, safety, budgeting, project design, proposal writing, maquette making, construction, installation and removal. When installed, Design and Build artworks enliven the everyday life of the community.

PlatteForum’s Artist Residency program supports contemporary artists as they work, strengthening individual practice through collaboration and community engagement. Our residencies are designed to celebrate creativity and foster and challenge artists to incorporate a bit of social practice, or social narrative into their process. Each resident artist becomes a catalyst for innovative and expansive thinking about what art is and can be.

While artists share their creative process and work with youth, PlatteForum gives guidance and ongoing support throughout each artist residency and beyond. Such support generates dialogue with the larger community about the role of the artist in society. Located in a rich urban context, PlatteForum’s dynamic, artist-centered residencies engage this community in the creation of new work where artists, youth, and the public collaborate.

Preference will be given to artists whose work addresses the larger questions in our world today such as race, class, social and ecological issues. In doing this we hope to provoke dialogue that helps shape our public narratives and cultural conversations.
