Art + Communications Fall Internship at the Schuylkill Center

Art + Communications Fall Internship at the Schuylkill Center

This Deadline Expired: Wednesday, August 1, 2018

The Schuylkill Center seeks an intern to support both the Environmental Art Department’s exhibition program and the Center’s organizational communications efforts.  The Schuylkill Center is a 340 acre nature preserve in Northwest Philadelphia that seeks to inspire meaningful connections between people and nature through a variety of programs. 

We are seeking an intern for the fall with the opportunity to continue through the academic year.  Listings are on the Schuylkill Center’s jobs page.

New this year, we are offering a $100/month stipend for this internship. We are also very happy to help with students getting course credit for their work with us.  Past interns have also structured their theses or capstone projects around their work at the Schuylkill Center, and we are happy to support students in that process.  Graduates are also welcome to apply.

Through abstract geometric paintings, Philadelphia artist Melinda Steffy translates music into color patterns, exploring ideas of translation, information and data, and how music weaves throughout human experience. Melinda Steffy’s RUINATION DAY series (acrylic on wood panel) deconstructs folk and blues songs that reference the date April 14, which is when Lincoln was shot, the Titanic hit the iceberg, and the Black Sunday dust storm devastated the Midwest. Melinda Steffy’s BACH PROJECT series (watercolor on paper) converts classical music by J.S. Bach and Bela Bartok into grids and pie charts. Rather than hear one note after the other through time, the paintings show all of the notes and rhythms simultaneously on one visual plane.
