Project Description

The U.S. Consulate in Cape Town has a collection of 72 pieces of artwork primarily by American artists and several South Africans. The Consulate collection is comprised of paintings, sculptures, photographs, prints, and other media, and is valued at over $330,000.

The Consulate has basic information about the artist and their artwork. The Consulate seeks an intern to propose a design for a printed book and/or brochure on this collection of artwork, and propose a design for showcasing the artwork in a physical space. This will require researching more about each artist and the artwork itself as well as presenting a proposal for how to best showcase the artwork to the public.
