Textile Storage Summer Internship

The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts is offering a summer internship for
the purpose of re-housing its textile collection.  The intern will
be working under the supervision of the museum's Conservator of
Objects and in conjunction with a consulting textile conservator and
museum registrar.  The intern will be carrying out an already
developed re-housing plan, assisting with the hands-on aspects of
re-housing including checking measurements, cutting and fabricating
supports, vacuuming, sewing on labels and placing the re-housed
textiles into their new storage cabinets.

Minimum qualifications are experience in handling fragile works of
art and sewing.   Previous experience in re-housing textiles is a
plus. Applicants must demonstrate the ability to work well as a team
player and have superior organizational skills.  Project period is
June 14 to September 3, 1999.  Stipend amount depends on experience.

Applicants should send a resume, list of three references with
address and telephone numbers, and a cover letter stating
qualifications and interests in this project no later than March 1,
1999, to
