2019 Summer Interns

Following a four-year hiatus during a $100 million expansion project, the Norton Museum of Art excitedly welcomed in June four new interns as its 22nd summer intern class. Goals of the internship include learning to collaborate in a museum environment and improving research and professional skills. The interns will be leading summer camp tours that focus on fusing art with traditional STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math) curriculum, partaking in daily discussions with Museum professionals, and assisting with various departmental tasks. Additionally, the group's primary responsibility will be organizing a summer exhibition titled Posters by Toulouse-Lautrec, which will be on view from Aug. 2 through Dec. 10, 2019.

Support for the internship program was provided by The Mr. and Mrs. E. William Aylward Endowment and The Chastain Charitable Foundation Endowment.


College programs at the Norton provide learning beyond the classroom and into the galleries.

College Partnerships

Instructors and Norton staff work together to create projects for courses. Students can give presentations in the Museum on art works on display, speak with staff about their careers, combine the Norton’s exhibitions and public programs with assignments, or other projects as appropriate. 

College Tours

Norton staff can tailor a 50-minute guided tour that addresses specific course content.
