Intern Testimonials

“My internship at MMoCA opened doors for me. As an administrative intern, I was exposed to the daily operations that make the museum tick. The small staff size allowed me to work on a range of projects, which develop a diverse set of real-world, transferable skills. Working with MMoCA’s friendly, talented staff, I always felt supported and valued. Throughout the internship, I was given a dynamic set of responsibilities, which made the experience both enjoyable and rewarding. In one day, I might move from sealing envelopes to working a museum event, or conducting research to helping prepare an exhibition. My internship with MMoCA was an invaluable experience and helped me to secure my first job.” – Andrew, Administrative Intern

“Interning with MMoCA provided me with a well-rounded experience I couldn’t have gotten anywhere else. The staff is fun, friendly, and welcoming, but above all, they are excited about their jobs and are more than happy to take the time to talk and help you delve deeper into the museum’s workings. MMoCA has inspired me to pursue the field of art museum development and administration and I couldn’t be more pleased with my experience.” – Emily, Development Intern

“Through my time as an Events Intern for the Madison Museum of Contemporary Art, I discovered what it takes to successfully administer art-related events both in front and behind the scenes. By doing so I was able to learn valuable technical knowledge and organizational skills.” – Gabby, Events Intern
