Summer Conservation Internship Position Available, Denison Museum (Granville, OH)
Historic Preservation Blog from PreservationDirectory.com - conservation, internship, collections, Ohio, museum
Contributed By: Nicole Hayes
Website: http://www.ica-artconservation.org

The Denison Museum in Granville, Ohio seeks a paper conservation intern for a summer project working on the prints and drawings collection.  The collection consists of over 1000 items, primarily 19th and 20th century American and European prints and drawings by artists such as Winslow Homer, Rockwell Kent, Honore Daumier and Pablo Picasso.  

The summer project is part of a large project to stabilize and rehouse the above collection.  The intern will carry out documentation and minor treatment (i.e. hinge and tape removal, surface cleaning, and remounting) on the items.  The intern will have the opportunity to assist and oversee the work of Denison undergraduate students who will also be working on the project.  Along with the stabilization and rehousing project, the intern will spend a five-day period at the ICA to conduct more complex paper conservation treatments and may also be able to participate in other conservation treatment projects at the Denison Museum.

The intern will work with the Museum’s Curator of Collections, with appropriate training and supervision by paper conservators from the Intermuseum Conservation Association, (www.ica-artconservation.org) a regional, non-profit art conservation center in Cleveland, Ohio.  The internship will be for 12 weeks and a stipend of $4,340 and housing will be provided.  The internship should start late May, but is flexible.

Candidates should have experience with paper conservation, through a recognized conservation graduate program or other related experience. Current and recent students of the programs are encouraged to apply. Candidates must be eligible to work in the U.S.  Deadline for application is January 16th, 2009 and a decision will be made in late January. Interested candidates should mail or fax a resume, cover letter, and list of three references to:
