January-June 2011 Work Scholar Session: Deadline to apply extended to October 4th
The deadline for applications to the Spring 2011 Work Scholar program has been extended to Monday, October 4th. The Work Scholar program at Aperture is a unique opportunity to be introduced to the many facets of the photography, non-profit and publishing fields. Following placement in each of Aperture’s departments, Work Scholars are involved in a range of tasks in the areas of design, editing, circulation, development, sales and marketing. The program also includes a number of special events, curator-led tours of exhibits, special studio visits with Aperture artists and a chance to get involved in the arts and photo world in New York. In the 2010 Spring session Work Scholars visited Mary Ellen Mark’s studio and were given a tour of Guggenheim show Haunted by the exhibition’s curator among other behind the scenes tours.
