The Chinese Culture Center (CCC) is seeking a gallery intern/volunteer to assist with our Visual Art Center, gallery shop, and alternative art space. The CCC Visual Art Center presents contemporary art and innovative artists. As the first impression of our visual arts, the role is integral to our public engagement strategy to shift the dominant narrative about Asian Americans. We want everyone to leave with a positive impression and understanding about our contemporary arts and vibrant community.

You will work closely with the gallery staff and other members of the team.

Also great for people who want to be involved with promoting local artists and designers, and unique items.

Duties include but are not limited to:

  1. Gallery engagement and support: greeting visitors, engaging the public, and interacting with people about the current exhibition, art, and the community
