The Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection of the University of Virginia is the only museum in the United States dedicated to the exhibition and study of Australian Aboriginal art. Our mission is to advance knowledge and understanding of Australia’s Indigenous people and their art and culture worldwide. Working with living artists, international scholars and arts professionals, we provide a wide range of learning experiences to the University community and the public through exhibition, research and educational programs.

Applicants must be current UVA undergraduates (must not graduate before May 2018.) Students enrolled in the University Museums Internship course are ineligible.

Please direct questions about the internship to Amanda Wagstaff, Indigenous Arts Program Coordinator, or Henry Skerritt, Curator of Indigenous Arts of Australia.
