Sculpture Trails Outdoor Museum has 20 internship openings for July 2024 and one of them could be yours!
This experience is a fantastic stepping-stone for you, your artwork, and your career as you work alongside experienced artists and interns from all over the world. The workshop pours 30,000 Ibs. of cast iron and produces 50,000 Ibs. of resin bonded sand molds all in one month. Our staff will help guide you regardless of experience level.
The Sculpture Trails mission is to encourage and teach the next generation of metal castors. Interns have the opportunity to create and install a sculpture in the Cast Iron Sculpture Exhibition on the Museum grounds for two years. The first week of July will be dedicated to casting and finishing intern sculptures. In addition, interns will be provided with free camping, a reduction in cost for materials, food, access to the foundry studio and speedy melt furnace.
The interns are responsible for all aspects of running the July Cast Iron Workshop. Ensuring the Artists have assistance with casting their patterns, creating a safe and clean work environment, maintaining the foundry tools along with other duties related to restoring sculptures on the Trails and grounds maintenance.
