The Chrysler Museum Glass Studio is accepting
applications for its October 2012 to January 2013 Studio Assistantship
term. Applications are due by 10 a.m. on 12th September, 2012.
Assistantship is an educational opportunity designed for students who
have completed an initial course of glass study (B.F.A./A.A. or multiple
workshops) and are looking to gain practical, professional studio
experience in a Museum setting. Studio Assistants will help the studio
team with public glass demonstrations, classes, and general operations
of the Studio for up to 10 hours a week for four months. The
assistantship is unpaid, but offers many benefits including the
opportunity to build skills, perform, and teach; studio time;
significant discounts on classes; working with world-recognized visiting
artists, and the opportunity to participate (commission-free) in the
studio’s quarterly art sale. Studio assistants must have prior
experience working with hot glass.

participate in this certificate program. The Museum provides a free
apartment for this Assistant during the duration of their assistantship.
The Traveller has additional responsibility and is expected to have
slightly more glass studio experience. Please make a note in your letter
of interest if applying specifically for this position. We are now
accepting applications for the February – May 2013 term Travelling
