The Colección Patricia Phelps de Cisneros (CPPC), an extensive collection of artworks and related archives, is the core cultural and educational initiative of the Fundación Cisneros. The internationally renowned collection seeks an intern to work assisting the Collections Manager two days per week in the Spring semester, with the possibility of extending the internship through the summer. This internship will be paid through funds provided by the Cisneros Initiative for Latin American Art at Hunter College at a rate of $14 per hour.

The CPPC consists primarily of modern and contemporary art, with an emphasis on the art of Latin America. It also includes a selection of Latin American landscapes from the seventeenth to the nineteenth century, a distinguished collection of Venezuelan colonial art and furniture, and objects and documentation of twelve distinct indigenous peoples from Venezuela's Orinoco River basin area. Through a website, exhibitions at major museums, a dynamic lending program and diverse publications, the Fundación Cisneros works internationally to use works from the CPPC to heighten appreciation of the history, quality, and range of art from Latin America, and promote a high level of expertise among Latin American art professionals.

The intern will report directly to the CPPC Registrar in New York.

The intern should be:

  • Interested in visual arts
  • Very meticulous with close attention to detail
  • Enthusiastic and energetic
  • Available to work two days a week
  • Proficient in Spanish

Responsibilities will focus primarily on the maintenance and updating of information on our museum standard database [TMS], as well as the cataloguing, digitizing and organization of the collection's extensive archive of images and documentation.

Interns will gain significant experience in database management, and will have the opportunity to interact with professionals involved in various aspects of the preservation and care of artwork. Upon successful completion of the internship the intern will receive a letter of recommendation from CPPC Collections Manager.

Please send letter of interest and resume by February 3, 2014 to:
