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
