The Zimmerli Art Museum seeks a visionary change-agent to build an integrated cultural magnet for the campus and region, using its world-class collections and potential partnerships to provide exciting, topical exhibitions, programs and events.

With a $5M budget, 35,000 sq. ft. of gallery space, and over 60,000 works of art, the Museum is strong in French and American, and the world’s largest holdings of Russian and Soviet non-conformist art. The Director will define an innovative exhibition and acquisition profile aligning with community on and off-campus and be an eager and authentic champion of new ideas. They will be a creative fundraiser with the vision to lead for growth and adaptation. This is an exciting opportunity to help imagine a new laboratory for learning and cross-disciplinary dialogue.
