Saint-Gaudens National Historic Site Sculptor-in-Residence Program

July 25, 2012

WHO:

This artist residency is specifically for figurative sculptors.

WHAT:

The sculptor-in-residence is a paid position, 40 hours a week from late May through late October.

The sculptor serves an important role in the Site’s interpretive program, allowing visitors to see how an artist works, ask questions, and thus learn something about the sculptural process. For this reason, while the sculptor works on his/her own art, it must be representational in form, either in the round or in relief, using the same basic techniques as Saint-Gaudens (1848-1907), i.e. working with clay and casting in plaster.

WHEN:

The position is usually advertised in January or February of each year on the usajobs section of the http://www.OPM.gov web site www.usajobs.gov Applications are done on line through that site. Interested sculptors should contact the park in January to see what the status of the position is for the coming year.
