Globe studio interns will learn the basics of letterpress and screen printing, or, if already proficient, improve their skills in these crafts by working on internal and external projects. (Recent Globe projects have included posters for Sanrio for the first-ever Hello Kitty Con and the “Pump Me Up” exhibition at the Corcoran Gallery of Art.) Interns will learn more about the collection by proofing cuts and type to help with archiving those items. Interns will help to keep the letterpress studio and Globe archive room in the Dolphin Printmaking building organized and ready for printing and other projects, and will safeguard the collection and tools in the letterpress studio by monitoring the studio’s use. Interns will work to develop a stronger appreciation for and knowledge of Globe through branding, social media, design projects, and community outreach, both at MICA and in the broader community.

More info is available on the MICA Network site, and anyone interested in applying should click the More Info link at the top of that page. If you have trouble finding it, log in to the MICA Network Student Site and search for listing #11948.

Here’s a student blog post from June 2014 about the internship on the Mica Internships blog for some first-hand account.
