PROGRAMS AND EVENTS

We present a packed calendar of talks, performances, and interactive events all year round and we’re open late—until 8pm—on Wednesdays. Our twice-annual Free For All party is an expansive evening of art and music, free food, and takeaways like DIY terrariums, nail art, and photo booth snaps!

INTERN AND WORK STUDY

Work with ICA’s team to gain valuable museum experience and enrich the arts community at large. We recruit energetic, organized, sharp, and creative people for positions in all of our departments, often working closely with individual staff members. (Unpaid internships are open to all, including high school students and recent graduates; work study is for Penn students only.)

RESEARCH FELLOWSHIPS

Each summer, Penn’s Center for Undergraduate Research and Fellowships funds the Summer Humanities Internship (SHIP), an intensive, full-time apprentice position at ICA that prepares students for entry into cultural professions. Read about SHIP intern Heather Holmes’s ICA experience.

GRADUATE STUDENT LECTURERS

PennDesign MFA students and Penn History of Art PhD candidates can apply for one of four annual ICA graduate student lecturer positions. Lecturers work closely with our programming department to organize and lead exhibition tours and facilitate Coffee & Conversation events on topics related to their practice or research.
