Thomas Jefferson Foundation, Inc. – $50,000

Monticello Curatorial Internship

With this grant, the Thomas Jefferson Foundation will create a full-time, one-year, curatorial intern position to update catalog records for the foundation’s 800 most significant objects and make them accessible for study by the public through an online database. The updates will address content bias shown towards white or dominant class artisans and patrons using an inclusive methodological approach to cataloging recently developed by the curators. This approach records materials, sources, and other details to reveal the diverse range of people—free and enslaved—responsible for making, using, and caring for each object.
