Projects Coordinator Intern
The Citywide Monuments Conservation Program and New York City Parks
    and Recreation, Art and Antiquities Department

Summer 2009

The Citywide Monuments Conservation Program and New York City Parks
and Recreation, Art and Antiquities Department, seek an office
intern to coordinate monuments conservation and maintenance projects
during the 2009 summer season. This is 40 hour a week paid position,
Monday through Friday beginning Wednesday, May 27 through Friday,
August 21.

The Citywide Monuments Conservation Program conserves and maintains
public works of art throughout the five boroughs of New York City.
Program participants will gain knowledge of the breadth of the
public sculpture collection, its history and conservation needs. The
monuments projects coordinator will serve as a liaison between
central office administration and outdoor field operations--writing
reports, archiving current projects and assisting the scheduling and
timekeeping of fellow interns. Responsibilities include a wide range
of bookkeeping duties, research duties and purchasing. In addition
the projects coordinator will lend administrative support to the
Monuments Conservators and to the Director of Arts and Antiquities.

This is an excellent opportunity to learn about outdoor sculpture
conservation with experienced staff in an award-winning program in
New York City.  The season will also include bi-weekly educational
visits (which may include a bronze foundry, granite quarry, and
museum conservation lab).  Candidates should have excellent
administrative skills, writing and research ability, and computer
skills, and should be well organized, yet flexible and able to
manage multiple tasks.  Knowledge of sculpture conservation and/or
historic preservation is preferable. This position may be applied
toward college credit.
