The Indy Arts Council seeks a part-time, one-year Public Art Administration Apprentice in connection with Indianapolis’ hosting of the NBA All-Star Game in February 2024. This apprenticeship is an excellent opportunity to learn and practice public art project management skills, and participate in the excitement of an international-level sports hosting event.

STIPEND: $10,000 (approximately $25/hr for two half-days per week for one year)
APPLY BY: Wednesday, February 15, 5:00 p.m. EST
The apprentice will work with Julia Moore, Director of Public Art, and will help manage “Hoosier Historia”, a statewide public art project that will create 24 landmark sculptures featuring artist-designed Indiana basketball stories. Responsibilities will include artist correspondence, budget and paperwork tracking, and other administrative tasks.
The apprenticeship pays a stipend of $10,000 for the year: this works out to $25/hr for approximately 8 working hours (ideally two half-days) per week. The daily schedule will be negotiated between the apprentice and their supervisor.
