“Art Authority” App Summer Internships
The creators of the award-winning “Art Authority” app line announced today that they are looking for up to 100 summer interns to help improve the app’s art collection. Presently including information and access to over 50,000 high-quality works, the goal for the summer program is to increase the collection to 75,000 works, along with upgrading its current images and associated data. Another goal of the project is to provide art students with experience working on a cutting-edge app within their field of study.
The internship program builds on a prototype implemented last summer, which added and improved about 500 works. College students majoring in any art discipline simply need a computer, iPad or iPhone and an Internet connection to apply for, and, if accepted, participate in the program. Participants will work out of their houses or dorm rooms, saving significantly on expenses. The positions are unpaid, but credit may well be available through their school. Perhaps even more important, students will gain valuable real-world experience as the art field follows music, movies, books and photography into the online, digital realm.
