Through their employment, students have the opportunity to interact and learn directly from curators, scholars, and educators as well as broaden their knowledge of art history and prepare for future career opportunities. Positions range from general office support to research for curatorial departments and assisting with the installation of special exhibitions. These positions are supported in part by the Kempner Family Endowment Fund.
