Marymount Manhattan

Art History Internships

Each year Art History students intern all over New York. A few examples of recent internships include:

imageAileen Marcantonio ’09 — Jo Wood-Brown, of Artists Exchange International
“Interning with Jo Wood-Brown was an experience that I will always cherish.  I learned so much and made great contacts while working with Jo.  During my semester, I assisted Jo in preparing and executing her lecture circuits.  I helped to prepare for a group exhibit at the Painting Center and a panel discussion at the Metropolitan Museum and Art.  Jo was such a joy to work for; she was warm, generous, and provided great insight into the art world.  I have used the skills that I developed while working for Jo in my current career.  As an Assistant Director at a Contemporary Art gallery in Manhattan, I work a lot with artists. I was so fortunate to have developed an understanding of the artist’s perspective from my internship experience.”

“When I started my work in the American Paintings Department at Christie’s, I was overcome by the scene that had played out in front of me as I sat in my first sale. My immediate reaction was quickly emailed over to Professor Bell, who gleefully replied and shared the same excitement. When I graduated, I was offered a paid internship at another prestigious American Art gallery in New York…. I chose Marymount Manhattan College because they understood the value of a small community that fostered intimate relationships between students and educators. I would have never had this kind of success had it not been for the environment that was provided by the College and the prestigious educators they employ.”

“During my time at Marymount Manhattan, I was able to complete four internships. The first was at Free Arts NYC, followed by the Antiquities Department at Christie’s, then the Metropolitan Museum of Art, and finally, The Solomon R Guggenheim Museum. The hands-on experiences and the combined support from my Art History professors at Marymount and my internship supervisors gave me a strong base on which to begin my career. I was offered a paid position in the Education Department at the Guggenheim after my internship and am now considering graduate school to further my education in the field.”
