The Dikeou Collection internship program aims to develop, enhance, engender, and establish a forum for artistically-minded people in Colorado, the US, and abroad. This independent, unique and hands-on experience will teach interns the day to day business of running a private collection, and the basic functions of a public space as it exists in an integrated artistic community.
Initiative is the nexus. We believe that when interns actively seek tasks at which they excel, the experience becomes more valuable. Because time spent at the Dikeou Collection will be currency for future involvement in the art world, we encourage each intern to shape their time at the Collection based on their interests. General responsibilities include docent duties such as opening and closing the Collection, guiding public tours one day a week, giving select visitors (artists, architects, scholars, members of the press), educational and school tours private viewings by appointment. Ancillary duties include exhibition preparation, archiving press, library maintenance, outreach visitor initiatives, office administration, and building maintenance.
The Dikeou Collection hopes to attract local, national, and international university students. We encourage applicants of all ages, backgrounds, and interests, from all fields of study, who have an interest in fine art, art history, architecture, museum studies, conservation, design, and beyond to apply.
The internship is slated to last 1 US University Semester, but is flexible. We offer credit to qualifying applicants. Applicants must have access, transportation, and housing that allows them to work in Downtown Denver at least 1 day a week for a total of 20 working days per semester.
