Internship at Shelburne Museum

From: Nancie Ravenel <nravenel>
Date: Monday, January 27, 2003
2003 Summer Work Project at Shelburne Museum

The Shelburne Museum is offering a summer work project in the
conservation treatment of polychrome sculpture.  The intern will
document and treat a carousel animal made by the Gustave Dentzel
factory in 1902.  The animals are made of carved wood embellished
with brass and glass ornaments.  Past treatments of animals from the
same carousel have involved removal of maintenance linseed oil
coatings from the wood, metal, and glass surfaces and fabricating
missing ornaments or portions of ornaments.

In return for undertaking this challenging eight-week internship
nestled between the Adirondack and Green Mountains, we could provide
a stipend of $1500 and a private room in a house shared with other
interns.  Interested individuals should contact
