Have you ever wondered ....

What is a CURATOR and what do they do?

How are ART EXHIBITIONS created?

What SKILLS are important for a MUSEUM CAREER?

If so, apply to the Mellon Summer Academy (starting mid-June), a one-week program providing a rich experience in an art museum with:

  • A curatorial project
  • Workshops with museum professionals
  • Behind-the-scenes tours of exhibitions and permament collections with curators
  • Networking events with art museums professionals

The Andrew W. Mellon Summer Academy and Undergraduate Curatorial Fellowship Program provides specialized training in the curatorial field for students across the United States from historically underrepresented groups and supports the goal of promoting inclusive, pluralistic museums.

After completing the Summer Academy, participants will submit supplemental materials for Fellowship consideration.
