Screen Shot 2014-02-17 at 1.12.54 PM

Due: April 17, 2015

The Crusade Engagement Grant awards $10,000 annually to the applicant with the most innovative idea to build audiences for photography.

Crusade for Art develops and supports innovative initiatives to create demand for art and opportunities to collect it. The Crusade Engagement Grant puts our greatest resource, the brainpower of our creative force, our artists, toward exploring solutions to the systemic problem of a lack of demand for art. This $10,000 grant aims to generate and highlight innovations and underwrite the execution of the best idea.

Synopsis:

Each year the Dallas Museum of Art offers nine paid internship positions—four in the Museum’s Education Department and five in the Curatorial Department—open to individuals with undergraduate or graduate degrees who are interested in exploring museum careers.

Established in 1974, the McDermott Internship Program allows Interns to work closely with staff throughout the Museum and provides opportunities for individual contributions, resulting in an in-depth and well-rounded perspective on museum work. In addition to their daily Museum duties that comprise a full time work week, McDermott Interns are also able to explore Dallas’s rich cultural scene through performances, museum visits, and collection tours arranged by the Museum. Interns are also able to request $500 toward qualified professional development to be completed during their tenure.

Application Deadline: Mar. 13, 2015
