Breidenbach Internship

The Breidenbach Internship allows one student each semester to work with the Samuel Cupples House at Saint Louis University. Students perform a variety of duties, including research assistance and exhibition preparation.

Breidenbach interns expand upon their classroom studies, building a knowledge-base of skills essential to a career in the arts, including:

  • curatorial studies
  • exhibition implementation
  • collection management
  • museum practices and administration

With the assistance of the Director of Cupples House, students receive a semester project tailored to their unique interests and long-term career goals. Past interns have worked on documentaries of Andy Warhol and have prepared informational materials for self-guided tours, among other curatorial and development/education projects.

To be eligible for this competitive internship, candidates must meet several qualifications:

  • a declared major in Art History
  • be in their third or fourth year of Art History study
  • have shown an interest in a career in the visual arts
