There are many ways you can get involved in local arts organizations. Learn more below.
SITE Santa Fe
Our Young Curator program is an after school program designed to give teens the opportunity to experience what it is like to curate an art exhibition in a museum setting. Students learn what it means to curate work at a professional level and produce a physical exhibition. This experience shows teens a side of the art world that is not immediately obvious to all, but provides additional pathways for those interested in pursuing a career in art.
Programs offered: We could potentially offer this internship to a younger candidate (who is the right fit), but there is a time commitment to our internships that make it difficult for younger teens to complete (while attending school). (10 -15 hours a week working in the building during 9-5 hours)
