Opportunity of the Day! Intern in Central Park this summer with a PAL!

Uncategorized 2 Comments »

Central Park Conservancy, a private, not-for-profit organization, was formed in 1980 by a group of concerned citizens determined to improve Central Park. Today, we manage Central Park under a contract with the City of New York. Over its 160-year history, the Park has experienced several cycles of restoration and decline. The era of decline in the 1960s and 1970s led to Central Park Conservancy’s formation. Central Park Conservancy is uniquely qualified to prevent future declines and ensure the Park’s care for current and future generations.

Thanks to the generosity of many individuals, corporations, foundations, and the City of New York, Central Park Conservancy has invested nearly $700 million to date into the Park, making it a model for urban parks worldwide. We provide 75% of Central Park’s $57 million annual operating budget, and are responsible for all aspects of Park maintenance, as well as capital improvements and restorations.

Central Park Conservancy’s Horticultural Sciences College Internship provides students with the opportunity to work side-by-side with Central Park Conservancy staff, building important life and career skills, better understanding the role they have in protecting living landscapes, and learning more about the complexity of managing an urban park that receives over 40 million visits a year.
This is a 10-week internship, June 1, 2015 – August 6, 2015.
Interns work Monday – Thursday, from 7:00 am to 3:30 pm, at a rate of $14 an hour. Housing and transportation are the responsibility of the intern.

In 1994 Valerie Dillon established Dillon Gallery in Soho with a concentration in contemporary Nihonga painters from Japan. She has continued to develop this program and now represents the most influential artists working in this genre, while continuing to identify and establish the next generation of artists with a global impact.

Dillon Gallery relocated to Chelsea and now occupies a 5,000 square foot converted 19th century warehouse on 25th street. It was here that Ms. Dillon began shifting her focus from primarily visual artists to her exploration of multimedia disciplines not usually associated with a traditional art gallery. In 2006 the gallery presented “Painted Music” a series combining technology with painting and music. This shift gave rise to the current group of artists represented by the gallery. Dillon Gallery is a pioneer in the art of scent with its 2012 ground breaking solo exhibition by Christophe Laudamiel dedicated exclusively to scent. Ms. Dillon’s early interest in the performing arts continued with many parallel presentations of art, music, and interactive exhibitions. Dillon Gallery has committed to sponsoring and championing collaborative performance pieces and interactive exhibitions dealing with the intersection of the visual arts and performing arts such as “Listen Quiet,” “The Armchair Parade,” “Osmeos,” and “Blackship Moments.”
