Summer Internship in Santa Fe, New Mexico
May 15 through July 19, 2017
Open to OSU undergraduate students in their senior year, as well as graduate students and recent graduates.
Two interns will be selected to continue an ongoing project, between the OSU Museum of Art and a collector in Santa Fe, to catalogue and photograph a private collection of approximately 500 textiles. Interns will split each week between this private collection and the assigned staff of the International Folk Art Market.
Interns will be expected to continue the task of cataloguing the private collection in the collector's residence. Objects will be tagged and descriptive data added to a spreadsheet. Each object will also be photographically documented with detail and overall shots for identification. A bi-weekly review of the data collected will be provided to the collector, as the collector may indicate specific items on which additional research is requested. Initial training in cataloguing procedures, tagging, research techniques, and how to use the camera will be provided by OSU Museum of Art staff before the interns depart for Santa Fe. When working with staff at the International Folk Art Market, interns will serve on the "Art Team," assisting in the development of the Folk Art Market decorations and volunteering time during the Market (July 14, 15, and 16). The project concludes with a final presentation to the collector and associated project faculty members on July 19.
