The Robert Rauschenberg Foundation fosters the legacy of Rauschenberg’s life and work. The Foundation supports artists, initiatives, and institutions that embody the same innovative, inclusive, and multidisciplinary approach that Rauschenberg exemplified in both his art and philanthropic endeavors.

October 22, 2025 marks the centenary of Robert Rauschenberg’s birth, a celebratory cause for the launch of the first volume of the artist’s Catalogue Raisonné—published digitally and free-of-charge—and for increased exhibition programming in museums and galleries worldwide.

As a whole, the Foundation focuses on three major areas: 1) increasing public access to and scholarship of Rauschenberg’s artwork; 2) cultivating emerging and established artists through a residency program at a 20-acre campus in Captiva, Florida, formerly the artist's home and studio; and 3) supporting philanthropic initiatives that connect art, culture, and creativity.

The Foundation seeks an intern to support the Archives & Digital team with large-scale digitization and cataloging initiatives, and reference workflows.


Under supervision of the Director of Archives & Digital and the Digital Asset Specialist, the Summer 2024 internship will focus on digitization, image ingest, metadata entry, and preparing remote research request materials. Additional possible projects include assistance with library cataloging, basic archival processing, and other duties as assigned.
