Conservation Technician
Internship Opportunity
New York, NY

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 interns will carry out conservation and maintenance treatments on public sculptures and monuments under the direction of experienced monuments conservators. Participants will receive training in documentation, condition assessments, material analysis, and report preparation.  In addition, interns will learn and perform conservation treatments including repairing, cleaning, and coating metals; bronze patination; masonry repair; mortar analysis, replication, and repointing; and tool and materials training.

This is an excellent opportunity to learn outdoor sculpture conservation with experienced conservators in an award-winning program in New York City. The season will include visits to a bronze foundry, stone quarry, museum conservation laboratory and artists studios, in addition to the daily hands-on work. More than 96 students have successfully participated during the last 18 years.  Students currently enrolled in graduate programs in objects conservation, historic preservation, or fine art are strongly encouraged to apply. Candidates must be able to work outdoors, be comfortable in handling power tools and equipment, and not fear heights, as projects often require work on scaffolding or in a lift.

*Unfortunately no international applicants can be considered at this time.
