MASS MoCA (Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art) is the largest center for contemporary visual and performing arts in the country. Housed on a restored 19th-century factory campus, our spacious, light-filled galleries feature changing exhibitions of the best art of our time, including dozens of newly commissioned works. Our year-round schedule of performing arts ranges from popular music to new theater, contemporary dance to rollicking dance parties, and from alternative cabaret to beautifully screened films. Artists who have been exhibited at MASS MoCA include Robert Wilson, Ann Hamilton, Gregory Crewdson, Matthew Ritchie, Tim Hawkinson, Oyvind Fahlstrom. Artists that have performed on our stages Bang on a Can All Stars, Laurie Anderson, Pam Tillis, Patti Smith, Philip Glass, Bill T. Jones, Joan Baez, Yo La Tengo and They Might Be Giants.
MASS MoCA seeks full-time interns for various departments. Spend any season in the culturally rich, naturally beautiful Berkshires, while gaining invaluable professional experience in the arts. Paid interns are given $100/wk stipend and free housing with a block of the complex.
