Arts internships coming for Boston students

The March 13, 2019 CommonWealth Magazine article by Michael Jonas, “Arts internships coming for Boston students”, details the new EdVestors and Bloomberg Philanthropy partnership to bring the Bloomberg Arts Internship program to Boston. From the article:
