Art Institute of Chicago: Ryan Learning Center Summer Internship


The Patrick G. and Shirley W. Ryan Learning Center is a platform for culturally responsive experiences

that bring young people and the adults around them into dynamic and inspiring encounters with art and creativity. The Ryan Learning Center team:

  • champions the role of art and culture in people’s lives,
  • promotes access and equitable participation in art and the museum,
  • fosters critical and creative thinking.

As a result, youth, teens, families, students, and educators from various backgrounds and abilities
engage with each other and with works of art from across time, cultures, geographies, and identities,
activating the museum as a place for learning, insight, inspiration, and community. These museum
experiences enable young people and the adults around them to feel more connected and confident in their capacity to imagine, create, and make sense of art and their world.


Duration of Program: 8 weeks / June 10, 2024 through August 2, 2024

Compensation: Paid / $16.32/hr / Full-time / Temporary
