The Saint Louis Art Museum is an encyclopedic collection of more than 33,000 works. The Conservation Department includes Hugh Shockey, Head of Conservation and Objects Conservator; Raina Chao, Associate Objects Conservator; Miriam Murphy, Assistant Textile Conservator; Courtney Books, Assistant Painting Conservator; and Sophie Barbisan, Assistant Paper Conservator. The summer interns will work directly with Sophie Barbisan and Courtney Books and will be supervised by Sophie Barbisan and Hugh Shockey.
Start and end dates and duration are flexible based on the internâs academic schedule. The internships will run for a maximum of 10 weeks and the museum will provide a stipend of $6,000 to each intern. Shorter internships will be prorated accordingly. While the museum does not supply housing, summer sublets from local university students may be available.
