Summer Internships in Paintings Conservation
The Cincinnati Art Museum seeks two conservation graduate students this summer to treat paintings for an upcoming exhibition. Under the supervision of the paintings conservator the interns will examine, document and conserve works by Cincinnati artist, Frank Duveneck (1848-1919).
