The Shelburne Museum is offering two internships in the conservation treatment of polychrome sculpture. The intern will document and treat a carousel horse made by the Gustav Dentzel factory over the course of 8 weeks.
This project would be appropriate for an advanced pre-program student working towards gaining admission to a graduate-level conservation program who has some prior experience with cleaning painted surfaces. In return for undertaking this challenging internship nestled between the Adirondack and Green Mountains, we will provide a stipend of $1750 for 8 weeks and a private room in a house owned by the museum. The house is located in a rural area approximately 2 miles from the museum. It is recommended that the intern have their own vehicle while here.
The project would begin on or around August 18, 2014 and would run through about October 10, 2014.
