The Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site in Cornish, New Hampshire is offering three paid internships during the Summer of 2014.
Who We Are
Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site celebrates the famous American sculptor Augustus Saint-Gaudens, an artist of the Beaux-Arts period classically trained in clay, whose works range from bas-reliefs and numismatic designs to bronze sculptures. Among his well-known works were Civil War memorials such as; the Robert Gould Shaw Memorial on Boston Common which commemorates Shaw and the African-American 54thMassachusetts Volunteer Infantry and a portrayal of the 16th American President Abraham Lincoln: The Man (also called Standing Lincoln) at Lincoln Park in Chicago.
The historic site comprises the artist’s house featuring original furnishings, his studio displaying plaster works and galleries showcasing bronze reliefs. Outdoor bronze sculptures are admired amid the grounds and historic gardens. Daily tours, weekend concerts, special exhibits and events occur throughout the season. The park is one of the few National Parks accredited by the American Alliance of Museums and our museum collection contains the largest assemblage of Saint-Gaudens artwork in the world.

With focus on the Pioneer Farm and George Washington’s Distillery & Gristmill, these internships provide an excellent opportunity for undergraduate students to become immersed in 18th-century history, agriculture, and industry.

Interns live on the grounds of George Washington’s Mount Vernon estate during the internship.
