We hope you will seriously consider joining one of the Grey Art Gallery’s Giving Groups, described below. As New York City’s leading university museum, the Grey not only contributes to this international arts capital’s cultural vibrancy but also provides students (many of whom have never visited a museum before) with a friendly, unintimidating experience and the opportunity to view provocative, mind-expanding shows. Although New York University covers our basic operating expenses, the Grey must raise funds to support our exhibitions, publications, and public programs. Our Giving Group members appreciate the crucial role played by university museums—educating the next generation about the importance of art and visual literacy. Grey Giving Group members are entitled to attend the gallery’s VIP receptions, to receive discounts on publications, and to participate in special Grey Art Gallery–organized events. Please donate and advance this important cause! For more information, please call Laurie Duke at the Grey Art Gallery, 212/998-6780 or email her at laurie[.]duke[at]nyu[.]edu.

NYU students are invited to apply for the Grey Art Gallery’s volunteer internships, which offer valuable experience in the everyday workings of a university art museum. Tasks may include assisting with research for exhibitions, cataloguing works of art, helping with public programs, consulting on the Grey’s social media, and giving gallery talks. Please note: Grey Art Gallery internships are reserved for students who are currently enrolled at NYU or accepted for a future term at NYU’s New York City campus. Term and hours are flexible. If an intern’s NYU department offers academic credit for internships, we are glad to work with them in fulfilling the requirements. To apply, please send a current resume accompanied by a cover letter summarizing your past experience in the field of art and your plans for the future, along with an explanation of why you would like to intern at the Grey Art Gallery in particular. Please note: We strongly recommend visiting the gallery’s current exhibition and exploring this web site before writing the cover letter.
