Job Posting: Freelance Art History Cataloguer, Private Collection, Boca Raton, FL


An ideal opportunity for a seasoned librarian looking for a unique challenge, recent library school graduate eager to gain some extra experience, or for a library school student as a possible independent project toward a professional degree.

Avid art collectors, Walter and Lucille Rubin, have assembled an impressive 4,000 item art history collection in need of professional organizing, inventorying and possible cataloging in preparation to donate to an art museum. The collection includes monographs, periodicals, art catalogs and related ephemera from the late 19th and early 20th century. The majority of the collection focuses on American art while the remainder covers European art. The materials, housed in a dedicated room within an office building, are currently located in Boca Raton.

The Rubins are true art collectors and have gathered their art and art history collection over many decades. They have exhibited their American art collection at the Boca Raton Museum of Art in the past as well as several other art institutions. The Rubins are also the founders of the Walter and Lucille Rubin Foundation, a charitable organization which funds art and medical-related initiatives.

If this project appeals to you on a professional and/or an art-enthusiast level, please contact Mr. & Mrs. Rubin directly for further details:
