Call for application for internship from Molly Murphy:
Internship is for one semester. There will also be an opportunity to curate a show at the end of the internship.
I am currently taking applications for an intern (maybe two, if there is interest) for a few hours a month who would assist with curation, hanging, promotion and coordination of art shows at Pachamamas, The Bourgeois Pig and Final Fridays Art Walks.
The ideal candidate would be someone with art knowledge and a desire to learn more about the administration and coordination of public and private arts events, such as Final Fridays.
Any interested candidate should send a letter of interest, and short bio to email@example.com. I hope you can let any student who might have an interest in this know!

On September 15th the Garden City Art gallery in Garden City, Kansas will open the show “Ad Astra per Academia”, a collection of student work to display the talent of art students at KU and K-State. The gallery is looking for a wide variety of different art forms, both 2D and 3D. We want the KU art and design programs to be well represented at the show, so students of all disciplines are highly encouraged to submit their work!
To submit your work, send small jpeg files to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org no later than August 31st. I will notify you within a couple of days if your work has been accepted. Please have the selected works ready to be presented and delivered to me by September 7th. After collecting all the work, I will deliver it to the gallery. Students will be notified when the show is over and I return the work to KU.
Note: Garden City is quite a way from Lawrence, so special care will have to be taken to safely transport the artwork. Extremely fragile pieces are not recommended. Please inform me when you submit your jpeg files if your art piece will require extra special care.
