Wal-Mart is Hiring

May 25th, 2005 · 5 Comments · Artists

Crystal Bridges, a newly formed museum of American art in Bentonville, Arkansas, seeks a talented and seasoned curator to lead the organization’s acquisitions, research, and preservation activities within the context of a major new museum for this region of the United States. The museum is scheduled to open in 2009 with approximately 30,000 sq. ft. of permanent and temporary exhibition space. A collection of paintings, sculpture, and works on paper from the Colonial period through the middle of the twentieth-century forms the nucleus of the permanent collection.

The successful candidate will be a recognized scholar in American art who can collaboratively work with the trustees and staff of the Walton Family Foundation to refine the vision for the permanent collection, establish the scope and breadth of a dynamic temporary exhibitions program, undertake primary research on the collections leading to publication, and work within the Northwest Arkansas communities to inform this process with the needs of this area.
