Internship Description
   
Who  
   
You
The internship is open to college students, graduate students, and high school students with strong research and internet skills.
Me
I am a nationally recognized artist, curator, and speaker. I work extensively with the National Park Service and am the author of the book, Weir Farm National Historic Site (Arcadia Publishing). I had a prior long-term career as an attorney and manager representing creative people and businesses.
What
Interns will be assisting me in the preparation of an exhibition about the smartphone’s development from the technologies of Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, Alexander Graham Bell, Guglielmo Marconi, and other inventors.

Specifically, the interns will be handling, inspecting, researching, and cataloguing rare and one-of-a-kind antiques as old as a century such as radios; record players; World War II naval equipment; meters and other testing gear; technical books and magazines; and many other unusual pieces dating from the early 1900s up to the digital era.

The items are archived at an off-site facility. Select pieces will be brought in for the work described above.

When
The days and hours are flexible and subject to workflow, needs, and your school’s requirements (if any).

The start date and end date of the internship period will be mutually agreed upon.
Where
The internship will take place at my studio in Roslyn Heights, Long Island.  It's easy to get here and there is plenty of free parking.  The address is:  192 Garden Street, Suite 2, Roslyn Heights, New York 11577.
Why
The internship is nonremunerative and I cannot guarantee a paid position after the internship ends.  But it is a great opportunity:
  • to work on a unique and interesting fine art project. Interns will be supervised and working directly with me.
  • to acquire hands-on experience and training.
  • to complete tasks that, when possible, are tailored to the intern’s educational and career objectives.
  • to earn a unique resume credential, a new personal reference, and a high-profile source for a written recommendation.
  • to be part of a select group of over 40 past interns who have gone on to careers in the legal, entertainment, and arts fields. Click here to read comments from past interns.
How
Complete the form below to submit the following:
  • Resume or curriculum vitae with an address, phone, and email.
  • Official transcript. A list of grades is acceptable, but an official transcript is required if an internship is offered.
  • List of at least two personal references.
  • Work/Study program requirements:  if course credits are being sought, the school's requirements must be submitted for consideration.
By making a submission, applicants are affirming that they read, understood, and accept the internship description above. 
Eligible candidates will be contacted for an in-person or video interview.
None of the above constitutes a contract of employment.
All of the above is subject to change without notice.
   

   
COVID-19 Preparedness  
   
  • Interns will work in their own unshared room.
   
  • Whenever it is practical to do so, some tasks can be conducted from home.
   
  • Whenever it is practical to do so, communications within the studio are conducted via text or email. In-person communications are conducted while maintaining a distance of at least six feet and masks are worn.
   
  • We practice the frequent washing of hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds as well as the cleaning and disinfection of workspaces. Five sinks are conveniently located throughout the studio.
   
  • We maintain vigilance for COVID-19 symptoms: fever or chills; cough; shortness of breath or difficulty breathing; fatigue; muscle or body aches; headache; new loss of taste or smell; sore throat; congestion or runny nose; nausea or vomiting; diarrhea.
   
  • A touchless forehead thermometer will be administered to check for fever.

   
  • Current studio workers have received the flu vaccine. Although the vaccine will not protect against COVID-19, it helps reduce the risk of flu illness, hospitalization, and death thereby saving healthcare resources for the care of COVID-19 patients.
