Fellowship at Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco

From: Debra Evans <devans>

Kress Conservation Fellowship, Paper Conservation
The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco

The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, with funds from the Kress
Foundation, is seeking a paper conservator to undertake a project
entitled "Uncovered and Unconventional."  The study will focus on
the installation issues of large format and three-dimensional
artworks made primarily of paper-based materials, those displayed
without a frame or vitrine.  The study follows a 2002-2003 Kress
Conservation Fellowship devoted to the preservation issues of large
format works on paper. During the one-year fellowship tenure, the
conservator will focus on solutions to exhibition problems and will
conduct treatments for an exhibition that will feature
unconventional three-dimensional works by contemporary artists.  A
presentation or publishable paper based on the project is expected.

The successful candidate will gain experience working with a wide
variety of paper based objects in a busy program serving two
museums, the Legion of Honor and the new deYoung Museum.  Graduates
from recognized training programs are encouraged to apply.  Stipend:
$25,000/year plus $3,000 for travel related to the project.

Send resume, list of references, and letter describing experience
and career objectives to
