WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) – The Cameron Art Museum announces that it has received generous funding from nCino for a new museum internship program for students of color and to support guided tours of the new sculpture, Boundless, from North Carolina artist Stephen Hayes.

As an organization, the Cameron Art Museum affirms its commitment to supporting diversity and inclusion in all aspects of its work.

CAM is looking for two university students of color for one-year internships at the museum to act as tour guides for the temporary exhibitions and the new sculpture, Boundless.

CAM recognizes that the arts and culture sector has always been a white space and is dedicated to creating a more interconnected diverse community of artistic leaders.

Students will receive valuable training in real-world museums.

Interns advance CAM’s educational mission by organizing tours and providing educational programs for the general public (children, adults, families) and special outreach programs.

They organize tours of the museum for groups of students and adults.

Using the techniques of Visual Thinking Strategies (VTS), Dialogue and Inquiry, Role-Playing and Storytelling, these interns connect visitors to the museum’s temporary exhibits and its public sculpture, Boundless.

Interns are trained in the VTS, receive training in unconscious bias, and learn about the community resilience model and arts integration, all of which inform the museum’s educational practices.
