Curatorial Fellow, The Westmoreland Museum of American Art, Greensburg

The Westmoreland Museum of American Art seeks a Curatorial Fellow to support the planning, reinterpretation, and reinstallation of its permanent collection galleries. Reporting to the Chief Curator, and aided by the museum’s Curatorial Assistant, the Fellow will use the theme of labor as a lens to interrogate the collection in order to make connections to both regional and national histories.

An American Alliance of Museum Accredited institution, The Westmoreland was established in 1959 through a generous bequest from Mary Marchand Woods, a long-time Greensburg resident who wanted her community to have an important cultural institution. Over the past 60 years, The Westmoreland has built a permanent collection of significant American art from colonial to contemporary, with a special focus on paintings relating to southwestern Pennsylvania within the context of the national American art scene. The opening in 2015 of the new cantilevered wing designed by Ennead Architects, coupled with the renovation of the existing building, provides a world-class facility for the collection and was recognized as the best designed museum in the state of Pennsylvania by Architectural Digest.

Today, The Westmoreland Museum of American Art has a new mission and strategic plan that centers on Diversity, Equity, Access and Inclusion. In November 2018, The Westmoreland eliminated its suggested donation fee as part of our Free Admission for All initiative ensuring that our collections and exhibitions are truly accessible to all. However, financial costs are not the only barriers preventing people from feeling welcomed and included in art museums. Through new acquisitions, a robust temporary exhibition program, community partnerships, public program offerings, visitor studies, and an intentional internal culture, the Museum works to fulfill our mission “to offer a place to share compelling and meaningful cultural experiences that open the door to new ideas, perspectives and possibilities” that it is truly accessible and equitable for all. The Westmoreland prides itself as a small, but nimble institution that has the ability to make meaningful change in the community and art world alike.

The Curatorial Fellow position is a ten month contractual appointment with the possibility of renewal depending on the availability of funding.

The Fellow will:

  • Develop permanent collection installations and educational materials with the spirit of experimentation;
  • Collaborate with the Learning, Engagement and Partnerships Department to create visitor centered interpretive strategies that engage the public in an inclusive and accessible format;
  • Utilize visitor studies and evaluation to inform curatorial decisions;
  • Participate in curatorial programming;
  • Aid in ongoing curatorial and reinstallation activities, including budgets, loans, exhibitions, conservation, and research and development;
  • And generate innovative modes of presentation for the permanent collection galleries.

This person will play an important role in developing the strategic direction and objectives for the reinstallation of the permanent collection for the 21st century. They will engage a diversity of perspectives, and dismantle and expand the canonical traditions of presenting and interpreting American art.

QUALIFICATIONS:

  1. Master’s degree in Art History; specializing in 19th and 20th century American art.
  2. Minimum 3 years of professional curatorial experience.
  3. Prior knowledge of collections management, exhibition development, and best museum practices and procedures (AAM, AAMC and AAMD standards).
  4. Strong organizational and research skills.
  5. Excellent written and verbal communication skills; strong public speaker.
  6. Technical knowledge and ability with computer, internet, and database systems.
  7. Ability to work collaboratively in a team with a wide range of people including staff, volunteers, interns, and artists.

Stipend for the Curatorial Fellow will be $50,000 for the ten month contractual period. Housing will be provided by The Westmoreland during this timeframe
