About the Young Curators of the Roaring Fork Internship:

Through the course of the six-month program, YCRF interns work directly with the museum’s Education and Curatorial staff, as well as visiting lecturers, ultimately building aesthetic valuation, leadership, organizational, and critical-thinking skills.  The internship culminates in a museum exhibition of artworks created by their peers.

AAM education programs are made possible by the Questrom Education Fund.
