Internship at Shelburne Museum

From: Nancie Ravenel <nravenel>
Date: Friday, January 2, 2004
2004 Summer Work Project
Shelburne Museum

The Shelburne Museum is offering two summer work projects in the
conservation treatment of polychrome sculpture.  The interns will
document and treat two carousel animals made by the Gustav Dentzel
factory in 1902. Each project has been chosen by donors to Shelburne
Museum's Adopt a Carousel Animal Program. The animals are made of
carved wood embellished with brass and glass ornaments.  Past
treatments of animals from the same carousel have involved removal
of maintenance linseed oil coatings from the wood, metal, and glass
surfaces and fabricating missing ornaments or portions of ornaments.

In return for undertaking this challenging eight-week internship
nestled between the Adirondack and Green Mountains, we will provide
a stipend of $1500, and a private room in a house shared with other
summer interns.  Interested individuals should contact
