Monuments Projects Coordinator
Citywide Monuments Conservation Program
New York

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 2013 summer season.  This is 35 hour a week position,
Monday - Friday beginning Wednesday, May 29 - Friday, August 16,

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
treatment reports and publicity advisories, archiving current
projects and assisting the scheduling and mobilization of field
staff and 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, artist's
studio and museum conservation lab).  Candidates should have
excellent administrative skills, writing and research ability,
computer skills, and should be well organized, yet flexible and able
to manage multiple tasks.  This position may be applied toward
college credit.
