John Grade Studio – Multiple Internships Available

Hello Prospective Intern,

Grade Studio is seeking interns to join our team. We create large-scale site-specific sculptures inspired by changing geological and biological forms and systems in the natural world. The studio’s sculptures are exhibited internationally in museums and galleries, and outdoors in urban public spaces, sculpture parks and nature. Current and upcoming exhibition venues include the Smithsonian Museum of American Art, the Seattle Art Museum, the Anchorage Museum, the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland, and the Arte Sella Sculpture Park in Trento, Italy.

Our team of 19 people encompasses a wide range of backgrounds with a diversity of skills and interests. Current and upcoming projects involve woodworking, metalworking, sewing, kinetics, electrical and computer modeling. Internships are unpaid and can range from two to five days per week for one to three months. Our goal is to employ and integrate your existing skills as well as introduce you to skills you would like to learn or facilitate further development.
