We’re Launching an Internship Program!

The curatorial possibilities are endless! Our team at NINE dot ARTS is excited to announce our new internship program, designed to engage the next generation of art professionals in using the power of art to transform the average business environment. The program, which will launch in January 2019 with five intern positions supporting all facets of the organization, is designed to provide comprehensive insight and hands-on experience in the art advisory business, while encouraging students across disciplines to explore a career in the arts. Resumes will be accepted on an ongoing basis, with a December 10 deadline to submit resumes to join the inaugural class of Intern Dots.

“NINE dot ARTS operates in a distinct position at the intersection of art and business, providing a unique opportunity for students to approach future arts careers from both perspectives,” said Martha Weidmann, CEO of NINE dot ARTS. “While the number of jobs in arts and design is projected to grow over the next decade, it’s expected to do so at a slower rate than average. This program, one of the only paid Fine Arts internships in Colorado, is an opportunity to engage students in the multi-faceted career opportunities available in the arts, while ensuring they are equipped with business acumen and skills to be an integral part of Denver’s $2 billion cultural and creative economy.”

Internship positions will support art curation teams on projects in Denver and throughout the U.S., artist relations through online platform Dotfolio and marketing.

“We ultimately hope to hire several of the interns to join our team as a full-time, salaried position at the completion of the program,” added Weidmann.

The six-month internship program, led by NINE dot ARTS Art Administrator Amy Smith, will begin twice per year in January and May. Applicants should be in their senior year, graduate school or recent graduates and will receive a stipend of $1,500 while also eligible to receive school credit.

Martha Weidmann

CEO & Co-Founder

When you’re born and raised in Mobile, Alabama, genteel grace and charm are just a natural byproduct of your upbringing. But Martha’s deep understanding of the art business and tenacious drive for business success are something all her own. As our CEO and Co-Founder of NINE dot ARTS, Martha oversees business planning, company finances, marketing and sales, team development, and is basically our head cheerleader and evangelist to the world. Martha left Alabama at 18 to expand her horizons and graduated from Colorado State University with a dual major – Communications and Fine Arts – to launch her journey. With her two diplomas in hand, she started her career with Walker Fine Art gallery in Denver, then moved on to the most prestigious art consulting firm (at the time) in the region, McGrath and Braun, from which NINE dot ARTS was born. Martha loves the business of art and finds tremendous satisfaction in helping new and emerging artists discover that you can actually get paid for your talent. She also loves using both sides of her brain on a daily basis, which can mean touring an amazing new NINE dot ARTS art experience in the morning and reviewing equally inspiring spreadsheets in the afternoon. When she’s not bouncing from meeting to meeting around our office, talking to movers and shakers in the art world, or giving high fives (with a handmade artistic hand, naturally) to team members, you might find her shopping at estate sales, urban hiking, listening to podcasts and audiobooks, or making cool stuff with her three art loving children.

Martha supports the art community by: currently serving on the Board of the Colorado Business Committee for the Arts and serving as Executive Director for Union Hall. Past experiences include lecturer for the Americans for the Arts conference in San Francisco on Art & Placemaking, serving on the Planning Committee for Stuart Semple’s Happy City, speaking on the CBCA Arts and Real Estate Panel, lecturer for the artist education series, Moxie U, and lecturer on Artist professional development for the Pueblo Economic Development Council.
