Student Opportunities

Aram Muksian '04 and visiting artist Kelsang Tsering Sherpa

Students actively participate in all aspects of Gallery programming and collection management, learning museum standards and methods of art handling and registration, assisting with the installation of rotating exhibitions and campus displays, as well as conducting research for curatorial purposes and educational programs.  Students can utilize works of art for course-related projects or initiate exhibitions of their own work or by drawing from the permanent collection. 

Student Jobs in the Art Gallery 
Friendly and enthusiastic students needed to work as gallery monitors; greet visitors; answer questions about exhibitions; assist with light clerical tasks. Reliability is a must! Monitors are asked to attend opening receptions and related educational programs so that they can become more familiar with the work and ideas that are presented in each exhibition. 

Installations Assistants 
Perfectionists needed to mat, frame, and install works of art for rotating exhibitions and campus displays. No previous experience necessary; training will be provided. 

Students will learn proper museum standard methods for art handling, unpacking and repacking, transporting, matting and framing, installations, signage, and lighting. 

Collections/Administrative Assistants 
Perfectionists needed to assist with the manual and automated recordkeeping of the permanent collection and other office-related administrative tasks which require attention to detail. Computer experience is required; art experience helpful but not necessary. 

Educational Programs Assistants 
Articulate, outgoing writer/speaker needed to create flyers for special events, lectures, and  workshops; write short press listings for campus publications; assist with researching and writing exhibition text panels (artistsí bios, etc.); and assist with gallery tours for targeted classes (SLU and area colleges and secondary schools). 
Student Jobs in the Gallery  
For any of the above positions, enthusiasm and reliability are required!  Student jobs fill very quickly; if you are interested in applying, please contact Cathy Tedford (x5174) or Carole Mathey (x5522) a semester in advance. 

Because of the extensive training, we like to hire students who will stay on for several semesters, but seniors are also welcome to apply.
