Advanced Painting, Object and Paper Internships
Funded by the
Getty Conservation Training Grant Program

The Intermuseum Conservation Association (ICA) is offering two,
advanced one-year internships in either painting, object and/or
paper conservation beginning September 2003.  Internships are
supported by funding from the Getty Grant Program.  Interns will
have the opportunity to work with ICA conservation staff on
outstanding examples of American, Asian and European art from the
collections of the Association's 32 member institutions as well as
varied not-for-profit public institutions, private and corporate
clients.  Duties include examination, treatment, analysis and
on-site surveys and treatments.  Research projects are supported and

After 50 years on the Oberlin College campus the ICA has relocated
to a newly renovated historic building on the near West Side of
downtown Cleveland.  The facility's spacious state-of-the-art
workspaces and equipment allows staff to provide a wide range of
conservation and preservation services.

The ICA's relocation to Cleveland provides ICA staff and interns
with convenient access to the cultural resources of the city such as
The Cleveland Museum of Art, Case Western Reserve University, The
Cleveland Institute of Art, and the Cleveland Public Library. This
is an exciting time for all involved and is a great opportunity for
the growth of the organization as well as professional growth for
staff and interns.  For more information on the ICA go to:
