WHAT: George Mason's Gunston Hall museum is looking for two, strong individuals looking for exhibition installation experience for two half days on this coming TUESDAY and FRIDAY (March 20 and 23, 8:30am-12:20 p.m.), and two full days this WEDNESDAY and THURSDAY, March 21 and 22 (from 8:15 a.m. - 4:30 p.m). We're deinstalling "Amending America," a show on loan from the National Archives.
This is a great opportunity to learn the ins and outs of exhibition installation through on-the-job training.
WHO: Must be able to handle heavy loads, far greater than 50lbs. There are 21 crates to unload and two dozen panels to disassemble and crate. Each crate ranges in size and weighs between 350-650 lbs. We will have dollies, pallet jacks, and J bars to safely move these items. Power tool experience is necessary. Must be able to listen to and consider instruction from others.
HOW MUCH: $400 for all three days of work, per person.
