Summer 2019 International Fine Print Dealers Association (IFPDA) Internship
Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco
San Francisco, California
Working directly with a curator, collection specialist, registrar, and conservator, the IFPDA Summer Intern will help with the preparation, classification, and cataloging of a large collection of rare books and artists' books. They will also assist in conducting an inventory of this portion of the museum's collection.
The intern will participate in the day-to-day operations of a curatorial department and assist in a range of activities, from clerical assistance and collection research to gallery installation. The intern will be exposed to the materials and techniques represented in a works-on-paper collection and gain familiarity with museum registration and curatorial procedures, learning about the care and cataloguing of works on paper. They will also develop a working knowledge of a museum database.
