UMOCA’s Internships are a great way to gain professional experience working for a non-profit art museum. All of our internships are department centered, offering a unique look on how each facet contributes to the operations of a contemporary art museum. Interns have the opportunity to work one-on-one with department heads to carry out specific projects and general daily needs. Supplementary learning experiences are also achieved through assisting with public programs including exhibition openings, film screenings, art talks, and community outreach. For more detailed information on the internships UMOCA offers, see the links to the right.
Internships are unpaid and based on semester schedules (depending on the accrediting institution’s requirements)
Early/Mid May – Mid/Late Aug
Early/Mid Sep – Mid/Late Dec

UMOCA’s Volunteer Program is a great way to interact with the local community and expand your knowledge of contemporary art, all while learning about the daily functions of an art museum. Schedules are flexible and there are no minimum monthly hours to fulfill. UMOCA provides parking during volunteer shifts and volunteers who assist 40 hours or more a year will receive a Family level membership.
Most volunteer opportunities take place in the museum, but some are off-site, including the Utah Arts Festival at Library Square and Art Truck visits to various schools and festivals throughout the valley.
If you are interested in becoming an Education Volunteer, please email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and number and why you’re interested in volunteering. For all other volunteer opportunities, email email@example.com with the same information.
We are deeply grateful for our volunteers and all they do to help us achieve our mission.
See below for job openings at the Museum.
Our team is made of some of the most dedicated art lovers and professionals that can be found in downtown SLC.
Each day we bring ideas, issues and vision to the team – then work hard to package and deliver the most meaningful and relevant experiences for visitors of every type. The art we have the pleasure of working beside is our muse and inspiration. If you are smart, hard-working, eager to deeply experience every aspect of museum operations and come with a smile, then we should talk.
