The Samek Art Museum, Museum Fellow
The Museum Fellowship is offered for recent college graduates interested in pursuing a museum career. The fellowship offers professional training in arts administration and is designed to help fellows support their academic and career goals through supervised work experiences. Under the supervision of the Samek Art Museum director and chief curator, the fellow has the opportunity to be involved in every aspect of the Museum’s programs and operations. This is a 9-month (Sep-May) fellowship for one year with the possibility of a second year. This fellowship is a commitment of an average of 20 hours/week (except holidays and University recesses.)
The Samek Art Museum is dedicated to providing valuable museum learning opportunities and operational experience to our students. The Samek and Downtown Gallery Guides are trained to lead visitors through our permanent collection and special exhibitions. Each Guide is trained to greet and offer resources to our audiences. In addition, these Guides serve as gallery attendants, responsible for monitoring our spaces and securing the safety of our exhibitions.

The Gallery Engagement Team (G.E.T)
The Gallery Engagement Team at Bucknell University is a student-run group devoted to creating awareness and advocating community involvement with the campus’ Samek Art Gallery. G.E.T. members work closely with the Samek Art Museum Director, Richard Rinehart, as well as other members of the staff, to promote gallery exhibitions and events. The group is also in contact with many other student organizations, encouraging the use of the gallery as a unique space for art-related or unrelated events.
