The CBAA Summer Internship Program had its inaugural year at the gallery in 2013. A college student was given the opportunity to work in the gallery during the summer months. The program allowed the recipient to enrich their personal arts experience while gaining real world experience in a commercial arts environment. It has been shown that college graduates who participate in an internship program gain the kind of real life work experience that employers are looking for in their employees. The program was a success for all involved and the CBAA is committed to providing such an experience for future interns. The program is now in its third year; please email or call us for inquiries about specifics of this program.
