No Longer Empty, the organization which transformed the Andrew Freedman Home 3 years ago into a major exhibition, is in search for volunteers for their latest project, this time at the Old Bronx Courthouse.
The exhibition, ‘When You Cut Into The Present, The Future Leaks Out’, will run from April 23rd through the end of July and feature many Bronx artists as well as artists from beyond our borders bringing what will be an amazing art-filled cultural adventure through what has been one of the most beautiful, yet enigmatic vacant structures in The Bronx.
The Old Bronx Courthouse has captured the imagination of perhaps millions throughout the past 38 years that it has been vacant and dormant but now you have a chance, not only to attend the exhibition but to work directly with No Longer Empty and the artists as a volunteer and help this magnificent landmark come back to life.
Please read the following from No Longer Empty and share widely with your friends, family, and networks for this wonderful opportunity. It is important to note that this is an UNPAID opportunity, but NLE can offer school credit if your institution accepts it:
NO LONGER EMPTY SEEKS EXHIBITION AND EVENT INTERNS AND VOLUNTEERS
No Longer Empty is looking for enthusiastic interns and volunteers to help with our upcoming exhibition at the Old Bronx Borough Courthouse, particularly individuals who are interested in helping with all facets of the event’s installation, programming, and gallery management.
The project is exciting—about 20 artists on three floors of an iconic neoclassical Bronx historical site. It’s a great opportunity to hone valuable skills while collaborating with respected artists, curators, and community figures.
Weekly work hours will vary and can be catered to your schedule, but intensify during installation (4/9-4/22) and de-installation (7/23-7/30).
We are looking for individuals who are interested in helping with any or all of the following:
- general installation
- technical installation (sound, media, lighting)
- youth educational programing
- event management
- cultural events
- visitor services
- gallery sitting
- NLE merchandise
- We also welcome your suggestions for other services you wish to offer
Prior experience is not necessary; however, please include a description of any previous experience in your cover letter. At a minimum, all we ask is that you be amicable, punctual, and enthusiastic! Interested persons should send a CV and short cover letter of introduction specifying their interest to firstname.lastname@example.org.
