Summer Internship Opportunity at the Hartman Rock Garden

Posted in job opportunities

Hartman Rock Garden, 2010

The Hartman Rock Garden (Springfield, Ohio) is offering a paid internship this summer to students enrolled in undergraduate or graduate programs who wish to gain professional experience in the fields of geology, history, art history, conservation, and museum studies. Applications are due April 6.

 

This intern will work alongside the garden’s strong volunteer base and professional advisors, including art historians, geologists, and art conservators. Tasks will include identifying the types of rocks and minerals that Ben Hartman used in the construction of the garden and attempting to ascertain the sources of those materials. This will include fieldwork in nearby streams and fields. The internship will also include interpreting and writing a “rock tour” of the garden, as well as basic hands-on conservation of rock and mineral art objects. This internship totals approximately 185 hours during the summer term. Schedules are based on the intern’s academic calendar. A $1500 stipend will be awarded at the completion of the internship.
