JOB OVERVIEW

About the Position

The DAP offers a nine-month, paid, full-time apprenticeship in preparation/art handling. We are especially committed to offering this opportunity to individuals from communities underrepresented on museum staffs and who are interested in building careers in art and cultural institutions.

The first month of the apprenticeship is a training period. During this time, you will learn a variety of skills, including how to pack, handle, and install artwork and artifacts. You will also learn how to maintain galleries, assist preparators (art handlers) and collections managers, properly use tools, and follow safety protocols. After this, you will rotate to at least three partner sites during the apprenticeship period. During this time, we will provide personalized support as you continue to build skills in art handling. You will also benefit from working closely with experienced mentors/supervisors and program staff, all of whom are committed to supporting your growth and skill development.
