About the Program
The AACA Museum of Hershey, PA is embarking on a unique guest curated exhibit for May 2017. This guest curated exhibit will involve a prestigious museum that doesn't normally conduct exhibitions of this manner and will serve as a template for other museums in the future.

The AACA Museum is encouraging an intern(s) to invest their skill set to help create a foundation for this exhibit that will continue to grow and expand. The chosen applicant or applicants (if more than one enthused person shows interest), will be granted the opportunity to use their research as part of an approved project, via permission, of their provost. Participant(s) will also receive a letter of reference, along with credit line within the exhibit acknowledging your participation now and as the program evolves.

This internship (via the AACA Museum) runs Tuesday through Sunday year round during museum business hours. Applicants have the ability to telecommute with this particular project as long as they meet the requirements below.
