The program is a learning experience for all who take part, immersing interns in the cultural life of the city of Venice, allowing them to gain practical experience of museum operations and familiarity with an important collection of modern art.

The program includes educational activities such as seminars, conferences, educational trips and guided tours for interns.

“I attended the PGC internship in 1996,” said Art Assistant Art Professor Micol Hebron. “It is so exciting to now see my Chapman students accepted into this very competitive, internationally renowned program.”
