Summer Internships in Objects and Textiles Conservation
Peebles Island Resource Center

Summer internship in Objects Conservation

    New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic
    Preservation's Peebles Island Resource Center is offering a
    summer internship in Objects Conservation. The stipend for this
    eight-week internship is $3000. Applicants must have completed
    at least one year of a conservation graduate program.

    This intern project is the conservation treatment of a pair of
    early 20th century, two-foot tall, pull-toy horses. These toys
    were used by the last children to be raised at Clermont,
    manorial home of the Livingstons, a prominent New York State
    family. The project will entail thorough documentation and
    research of the toy horses, as well as the execution of their
    treatment. The intern will develop his or her own treatment
    proposal and work plan. One goal of the treatment will be the
    replacement of the missing hide coverings. The intern will work
    under the guidance of the Objects conservator. However,
    self-motivation and the ability to work autonomously will be
    expected.
