The mission of the Museum is to promote, preserve, and share the knowledge of printed communication and art as the greatest contributors to the development of the civilized world and the continuing advancement of freedom and literacy. The museum is looking for help in researching and cataloguing materials, including printing machinery, and in planning future exhibits.
Assist Curator with fire recovery efforts after fire at the museum on May 10th. This will largely include general inventorying and cataloging of permanent collection items, creating paper and digital accession records. Also, assist in researching collection items on display, creating research files and possible didactic labels for the gallery spaces.
Develop an oral history collection for the local printers, long-standing printers guild members, and founding members of the museum. The purpose of the interviews are to record and preserve parts of the museum’s history, as well as the community narrative of printing in Houston.
