Description:

The Davison Art Center holds Wesleyan University’s collection of over 25,000 artworks, consisting chiefly of prints and photographs.

Responsibilities:
  • Assistance in staging the collection to move
  • Tracking object locations
  • Assistance with the cataloguing and inventory of the collection
  • Some art handling
  • Other duties as assigned
This is a temporary, non-benefit eligible position that is scheduled to work up to 30 hours per week. Position is expected to commence in January 2022 and extend through mid-June 2022.
