Art Intern at Tikkun Magazine

Art interns at Tikkun engage deeply with the question of how to illustrate articles about politics, social change, and spirituality. They work on our national magazine and on our website, generating illustration ideas and conducting image research. They will play a central role in finding imagery for use on our new multimedia blog site, which is currently under construction. The site will feature regular photo essays and art galleries. In the art world these days, it is quite difficult to find images that are not only artistically strong but also have social content. We need images that critique the pretensions and cruelties of our materialistic and self-centered culture. We also need artwork about peace, spirituality, hope, and social transformation that is NOT sappy, corny, or part of a New Age aesthetic. Interns are encouraged to scour museums, galleries, artists' websites, and online image libraries to find these sorts of images. On the print side, the design process at Tikkun is a dynamic collaboration between the magazine's editors in Berkeley and the Design Action collective in Oakland. Art interns work on a part-time unpaid basis with the editors in Berkeley, where they develop relationships with freelance artists, obtain permission to reprint images, and brainstorm ways to illustrate the complex concepts often explored by articles in the magazine and on the magazine's website. Interns with strong art skills may also be encouraged to try their hand at creating original illustrations to be considered for publication in the magazine. Internships last a minimum of three months.
