  • Developing marketing materials, including brochures, flyers and content for social media, etc.
  • Event logistics, including MOCA GA’s upcoming fundraiser and the Off-the-Wall Pin Up Show + Sale.
  • Completing “decades” research, an ongoing project aimed at identifying events and individuals in Georgia that were pivotal to the development of the art/cultural scene in the State from the 1940’s until present.
  • Leading museum tours; interns who so choose can be trained as docents beginning in October and will assist staff in providing tours as assigned.
