Summer Internship
The Denison Museum
Granville, OH

The Denison Museum in Granville, OH seeks a paper conservation
intern for a summer project working on the prints and drawings
collection.  The collection consists of over 1000 items, primarily
19th and 20th century American and European prints and drawings by
artists such as Winslow Homer, Rockwell Kent, Honore Daumier and
Pablo Picasso.

The summer project is part of a large project to stabilize and
rehouse the above collection.  The intern will carry out
documentation and minor treatment (i.e. hinge and tape removal,
surface cleaning, and remounting) on the items.   The intern will
have the opportunity to assist and oversee the work of Denison
undergraduate students who will also be working on the project.
Along with the stabilization and rehousing project, the intern will
spend a five-day period at the ICA to conduct more complex paper
conservation treatments and may also be able to participate in other
conservation treatment projects at the Denison Museum.

The intern will work with the Museum's Curator of Collections, with
appropriate training and supervision by paper conservators from the
Intermuseum Conservation Association
<URL:> a regional, non-profit art
conservation center in Cleveland, Ohio.  The internship will be for
12 weeks and a stipend of $4,340 and housing will be provided.  The
internship should start late May, but is flexible.

Candidates should have experience with paper conservation, through a
recognized conservation graduate program or other related
experience. Current and recent students of the programs are
encouraged to apply. Candidates must be eligible to work in the U.S.
Deadline for application is January 16, 2009 and a decision will be
made in late January. Interested candidates should mail or fax a
resume, cover letter, and list of three references to:
