Call for Applications: APS Intaglio Printmaking Workshop for Early-Career Curators and Scholars (Minneapolis, July 24–28, 2023)

The Association of Print Scholars (APS) is currently accepting applications for the second of its two-part series of intensive hands-on printmaking workshops for emerging scholars and curators, which is generously funded by The Getty Foundation’s initiative, The Paper Project: Prints and Drawings Curatorship in the 21st Century. This five-day workshop will be dedicated to intaglio techniques (etching, drypoint, engraving) and will be hosted in Minneapolis, MN, in partnership with the Highpoint Center for Printmaking and the Minneapolis Institute of Art.

A thorough comprehension of various printmaking methods is critical to producing scholarship and exhibitions on these media. Yet, many early-career print curators and scholars lack such practical experience as they embark on their careers due to competing professional and academic demands that make it difficult to enroll in a semester-long printmaking course. With the technical intricacies of printmaking difficult to grasp through text alone, an intensive workshop provides an invaluable technical and material knowledge of printmaking that will not only contribute to, but also enhance, a print curator and scholar’s understanding of a work’s content, intention, and aesthetic. The aim of this workshop is to further prepare participants to better communicate these complex techniques in an accessible language to a general museum audience and contribute new personal insight to the field.

Ten early-career curators and scholars will be selected to participate in the workshop, which will be held in Minneapolis, MN, between July 24 and July 28, 2023. The intensive program will include a visit to MIA’s Herschel V. Jones Print Study Room to examine a selection of intaglio prints from the museum’s collection. Participants will also engage in hands-on work in drypoint, engraving, and etching at the Highpoint Center studio as well as explore the Highpoint’s facilities, library, galleries, and print room. A day will be devoted to print identification, including a second visit to MIA’s Study Room to scrutinize variant intaglio techniques (aquatint, mezzotint, etc.). The workshop will conclude with Highpoint staff leading demonstrations of other intaglio techniques as informed by participant projects and a final seminar and reflection led by APS organizers.

Applications to the workshop are open to candidates who have a graduate degree (or equivalent experience), but must be within 10 years of receiving their terminal degree. Preference will be given to early-career curatorial professionals (curators, curatorial or research assistants/associates, postdoctoral fellows), although advanced graduate students and independent scholars with a long-held demonstrated interest in printmaking and curatorial practice will also be considered.

APS is committed to supporting the professional development of a diverse and inclusive community within the field of print scholarship and strongly encourages candidates from underrepresented groups to apply.

Travel, accommodation, and meal expenses will be covered.

To apply, please submit the following documents via an online application form (link), which requires:

  • A brief statement (500 words max.) describing your research and how it would be enriched by a workshop on intaglio techniques
  • A current CV or resume
  • One letter of reference (sent directly to

Please note that for full consideration, all materials, including the reference letter, must be received by the workshop organizers no later than November 1, 2022.

Successful applicants will be notified by December 1, 2022.

The workshop will be organized and led by current APS President, Dr. Elisa Germán, and APS Workshop Coordinator, Dr. Sarah Bane.

JOB: Research Specialist, Race and Daniel Chester French

Opportunity: National Endowment for the Humanities (NEH) Research Specialist

Date: May 2022

Division: Preservation

Department: Historic Sites

Office: Chesterwood

Project Manager: Executive Director

About the Organization

Chesterwood is the former summer home and studio of sculptor Daniel Chester French (1850-1931). Located in Stockbridge, Massachusetts, Chesterwood is a historic site of the National Trust for Historic Preservation, an organization that protects significant places representing our diverse cultural experiences. Today, Chesterwood preserves and interprets the work and legacies of French as a significant creator of monumental art.

The Research Specialist project is  funded in full by the National Endowment for the Humanities.

Scope of Work

The Research Specialist will research and examine a selection of sculptures from French’s body of work through the perspectives of African Americans and/or Indigenous Americans. A list of over 40 of his works have been identified as complex, problematic and even racist. These works include depictions of individuals considered important to the dominant culture during French’s lifetime who were also enslavers, or politicians who wrote legislation that removed Native peoples from their homelands, for example. Alternatively with other sculptures it is the artist’s representation of Black or Indigenous persons which is problematic. The scholar will explore these pieces through critical frameworks and the Black and/or Indigenous gaze to provide nuance and fresh context for French’s work in contemporary society. This project will provide broadly applicable humanities-based models for examining historical/political monuments and memorials in the fuller contexts of their time.

The Research Specialist is invited to work remotely, but also encouraged to visit Chesterwood to review curatorial files and plaster studies of French’s public sculpture. In addition, the Research Specialist is encouraged to visit Chapin Library, Williams College, Williamstown, Massachusetts, where Chesterwood’s archival and photographic files are located. The length of the project, from research to deliverables, is one year, anticipating the Research Specialist will be working part-time. 

A small, additional budget for a stipend is available if the Research Specialist chooses to conduct interviews, focus groups, workshops or do oral history research to support this project. 


The outcome of this scholarly and curatorial endeavor will be an online exhibition and catalogue of French’s more problematic public works through the National Trust’s Collections Portal; the research compiled will serve as an educational resource for Chesterwood’s interpretive staff; and lastly, the material will be shared with Chesterwood visitors, offering a full and honest accounting of these important works of sculptural art. Deliverables include:

o A detailed study on the outlined works of art. To be published online with the exhibit.

o Online exhibit introduction text.

o Appropriate “label copy” text, i.e., short synopsis of each work’s complexity and significance. 

Chesterwood staff will be available as a resource to the Research Specialist and handle the creation of the online collection itself. 

The Research Specialist is a NEH-grant funded position of $15,000 for the duration of the project, which is expected to be completed within the course of one calendar year. Dispersal of grant funds will be at predetermined installments by the Executive Director, with the final dispersal upon receipt of all deliverables. 


• Applicants who identify as African American/Black or Indigenous/Native American/American Indian are strongly encouraged to apply.  

• The position is open to independent scholars, tenured and non-tenured professors, and graduate students. 

• Experience researching, writing about, curating exhibitions on, or teachingIndigenous/Native American/American Indian and/or African American history or 

• Applicants should have a demonstrated area of expertise and interest in the areas of monumental sculpture, 19th century sculpture, or public art, and may include those with backgrounds in history, public history, art history, museum studies and curation. 

• A high degree of cultural competency is a necessity, especially when writing or speaking about Black and Indigenous people of color perspectives and when in conversations with members of the Black/African or Indigenous/Native American communities. 

• Must be conversant in topics and issues relevant to Indian Country or US based Black communities today.

• Attending or having a professional or alumni affiliation with a Historically Black College and University (HBCU) or Tribal Colleges and Universities is a plus.

Please send proposal with CV and background materials regarding skills and expertise to Donna Hassler, Executive Director, Chesterwood, at, outlining your interest in participating in this project.  Deadline to submit this information is May 15, 2022.
