Assistant Registrar Intern The Artists Archives is in the midst of a yearlong project to examine all of the works in its collection, and update the individual storage, documentation, and previously-entered data on said works. The intern will work with the Director and Registrar to learn how to examine and make a condition report, document work through photos, prepare objects for storage, enter subsequent data into software, and generate final reports.
Through this first part of the summer, the intern will develop an understanding of how small museums function. Then he/she will be assigned an individual artist’s work to catalog as an independent work. The unique collaborative and independent nature of this internship will allow the intern to learn all aspects of cataloguing, handling, and storing works of art.
Qualifications The Assistant Registrar Intern must have basic knowledge of Photoshop and data entry. He/she is patient, detail-oriented, and curious about the operations of a small museum environment. Preference will go to students with a background in visual art, art history, or photography.
Application To apply for this position, please send all required information listed under "How to Apply" to Mindy Tousley, Executive Director, at mindy@ArtistsArchives.org with “Arts Intern” in the subject line.
