Getty Conservation Training Grant
Advanced Paintings and Paper Internships

The Intermuseum Conservation Association (ICA) is offering advanced
one year internships in paintings and paper conservation beginning
September 2002. Internships are supported by funding from the Getty
Grant Program.  Working in close collaboration with ICA's
conservation staff, interns will have the opportunity to work on
outstanding examples of American, Asian and European art from the
collections of the Association's 31 member institutions as well as
varied non-member not-for-profit public institutions, private and
corporate clients.

Currently the ICA is housed in the Allen Art Building on the Oberlin
College campus where it has been for nearly 50 years.  However,
after much consideration and planning, the ICA will be relocating to
downtown Cleveland to the ICA's own much larger and more versatile
facility at the end of 2002. This an exciting time for all involved
and is a great opportunity for the growth  of the organization as
well as professional growth for staff and interns.

As an advanced intern at the ICA you will have access to modern
facilities and equipment, the ICA's conservation library and
professional staff, and the resources of Oberlin College's art
department, art library and the Allen Memorial Art Museum, located
in a shared complex.  In addition, the ICA is located 40 minutes
from downtown Cleveland and the cultural resources of the city such
as The Cleveland Museum of Art, Case Western Reserve University, The
Cleveland Institute of Art, etc.  For more information on the ICA

travel and research allowance of $2,500 and four weeks paid research
leave.  Benefits include health and disability insurance, life
insurance and paid holidays.
