Fall internship opportunity

CALL FOR INTERNS: THE PITCH PROJECT

The Pitch Project, Gallery and Artist Studios is seeking motivated interns for the Fall of 2016.

The Pitch Project is a home for contemporary art practices in Milwaukee’s Historic Walker’s Point neighborhood. The Pitch Project is not only a gallery for bringing contemporary global practices and exhibitions to Milwaukee, but provides studios for 23 local artists who are active on a national and international level. The Pitch Project hosts diverse exhibitions, artist talks, screenings, and events. Founded by Mike Brenner, in conjunction with Brenner Brewing Company (in the adjacent building), the gallery and studios are run by its four co-directors: Brewer; Mike Brenner, and artists; Will PerglSonja Thomsen, and Jason S. Yi.

This is a great opportunity for students who are looking to gain experience working in a gallery setting and meet contemporary artists who are working regional, national and international stages. We are looking for students who can hit the ground running as the gallery will open its fall exhibition September 10 and host an open studio event September 17-18.
