Library Foundation of Los Angeles

Los Angeles

Exhibition, Public Programs, Archives Internship »

The Library Foundation of Los Angeles seeks an Exhibition and Public Programs intern to assist with the implementation of the upcoming exhibition, “Now Presenting the Internationally Famous Yale Puppeteers” (working title). The Los Angeles Public Library will present this exhibit at the Central Library in downtown Los Angeles from September 19, 2019, to February 16, 2020.

As the Exhibition, Public Programs & Archives intern, you will work on a variety of tasks that include independent research, creating website copy, and coordinating associated public programs that will take place at Central Library. The selected intern will work with Library staff in the Photo Collection.

For over 20 years, the Los Angeles Public Library has been the custodian of the Yale Puppeteers/Turnabout Theater Collection. The collection contains documents, photographs, ephemera, and puppets relating to the 70+ year career of the Yale Puppeteers, including their time running the Turnabout Theatre, which operated on La Cienega Boulevard from 1941-1956.

The Puppet Maker (Harry Burnett), the Songwriter (Forman Brown), and the Impresario (Richard “Roddy Brandon) found each other in the 1920s and formed a partnership, which ultimately became a family that lasted until their deaths nearly 70 years later. They had a shared vision of entertaining adults in the form of puppets, and this exhibit will chronicle that journey. From the Universities of Michigan and Yale to the roads of New England to the glitz of Los Angeles, the exhibit will explore their starts and stops until they finally landed on La Cienega and created the theater that would bring them international fame.

In addition to the Yale Puppeteers exhibition, the Library will be coordinating puppetry programming at Central Library and in coordination with the non-profit group Photo Friends, will be producing an accompanying catalog.

Project manager and exhibition curator, Christina Rice, will supervise all aspects of the internship, including assignment of duties and evaluation.
