The Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden (Washington, DC) is offering two paid outdoor sculpture internship positions for this summer (2021) - one for a pre-program candidate, and one for a graduate level candidate.
The participants will receive a hands-on introduction to outdoor sculpture conservation and opportunities to assist with other projects related to the care and conservation of a contemporary art collection.
The interns will carry out a variety of conservation treatments on the outdoor sculpture collection, document sculpture treatments through treatment reports and digital documentation, learn about the properties and application of a range of conservation materials, and utilize specialized tools and analytical equipment in the performance of their daily duties. In addition to treating and examining outdoor sculpture, the interns will be performing other essential conservation tasks, such as conducting gallery inspections, monitoring environmental conditions in the collection spaces, conducting object treatment in the conservation lab, and assisting with exhibition-related tasks.
