Contract Preparator/Art Handler (Works on Paper)

The Davison Art Center (DAC) at Wesleyan University seeks a contract preparator/art handler to assist with the DAC’s collection move to new purpose-built facilities in 2020.

Primary responsibilities include: preparing artworks on paper, art handling, assisting the DAC Gallery Supervisor with staging the collection to move, as well as other duties as assigned. This position is scheduled at 30 hours per week; it may commence in January 2020 and extends through mid-August 2020. Experience preparing artworks on paper according to museum standards is required. The Davison Art Center holds Wesleyan University’s collection of over 25,000 artworks, consisting chiefly of prints and photographs. The breadth of the collection is equaled by its quality: exceptionally fine impressions by Rembrandt van Rijn and Francisco de Goya, rare early engravings, and contemporary artwork by artists including Glenn Ligon and Jasper Johns are only a few highlights.

Candidates with experience working with and handling works on paper will be given preference. Apply by sending a brief cover letter and resume to dac@wesleyan.edu. Applications will be considered on a rolling basis. No phone calls please.
