Collections Intern

Londonderry Arts and Historical Society, Londonderry, VT

COLLECTIONS INTERN FOR THE LONDONDERRY (VT) ARTS AND HISTORICAL SOCIETY. The Londonderry Arts and Historical Society is looking for an intern to inventory and catalog its archives. LAHS has an extensive collection of art from WPA artist Bernadine Custer and her husband Jimmy Sharp. In addition the society own numerous artifacts of historical local importance. Our collection is significant but disorganized. It is housed at the Custer-Sharp House (former home of the artists), an 1820’s farm house in Londonderry, Vermont. The intern will work under the supervision of a museum collections professional. Together this team will prioritize and organize the collection, enter data in Past Perfect, and make recommendations to the board regarding collections management. 3-5 days per week, May-September, salary negotiable.
