  Gallery Internships & Volunteer Opportunities for Community Service



Manifest is now seeking interns and volunteers for the current season and beyond.


Ideal applicants will be quality-minded, responsible, and outgoing individuals. Students in any field of study are qualified, however successful applicants should have a reasonable interest in the art and design fields, art history, business, statistics, philosophy, sociology, etc. Internships at Manifest provide valuable hands-on experience with the operations of a small non-profit organization functioning at a level equivalent to most commercial or university galleries and many museums. Our interns often use their tenure at Manifest as a springboard to graduate school or full-time employment at museums and organizations around the country.

Manifest will work with college programs to coordinate the awarding of college credit. Non-students are eligible to apply for volunteer internship positions as well.





  Paid Positions


Manifest is ever growing. We will post future job openings here as they come available.
