The fellowship will focus on the study, examination and treatment of works of art in the collections of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art. Successful candidates will gain considerable experience treating works of art in well equipped, production-oriented conservation laboratories. Conservation involvement in permanent collection exhibitions and special exhibitions will enhance training opportunities. Successful candidates will have the opportunity to participate in informal lectures, symposia, and workshops and to visit and collaborate with nearby cultural institutions. With proper training, the Conservation Fellow may act as courier for works of art on loan or exhibition to other museums and institutions.
