The mission of the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust is to engage, educate, and inspire the public through interpretation of Frank Lloyd Wright’s design legacy and preservation of his sites for future generations. We believe that our mission is most effectively fulfilled through a commitment to inclusiveness as a core value and practice. We are proud to be an equal opportunity employer that does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, sexual orientation, gender identity, marital status, veteran status or disability. Furthermore, we seek to build awareness and understanding of Wright’s vision among people of all ages, backgrounds, ethnicities, genders, sexual orientations, socioeconomic situations, religions, abilities and family configurations.
Employment and Internships
Work at the Frank Lloyd Wright Trust provides employees and interns with enriching opportunities to learn about, foster appreciation for and help preserve Wright’s art and architecture.
Positions may be located at one of four sites: the Trust's central offices at The Rookery Building in downtown Chicago; Wright’s Oak Park Home and Studio; the Robie House in Chicago; or the ShopWright Merchandise Center in Bellwood, Illinois.
All locations are smoke-free and drug-free environments. Though its multi-level historic buildings are not accessible to those with mobility impairments, the Trust is proud to be an equal opportunity employer that does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, national origin, sex, age, sexual orientation, veteran status or disability.
Health and Safety
Employees and interns are advised on OSHA standards through required signage and administrative updates compliant with federal and state law.
Internships are available year-round. The Trust’s internship program welcomes students, graduates, and career-changers who wish to broaden their educational experience by working and learning in a professional museum environment. Students interested in cooperative education or academic credit should contact their college placement office or counselor for more information.
Interns are trained and assigned to perform duties that are department specific and which may or may not include tour delivery.
Coordination of the internship program is provided by the human resources manager and attempts will be made to match intern interests with the Trust’s needs. Supervision of specific duties is provided by department managers.
