Job Description

Vibrant arts and cultural experiences transform the way we view ourselves and the world around us. Over the next five years, Glenbow is evolving into one of North America’s most innovative public art museums. At the center of our transformation is a focus on new experiences that will be approachable, inspiring and authentic. We will engage people with meaningful and memorable encounters with our diverse collections and by connecting them to artists and creators. We will contribute to and facilitate the conversation about the role that art and culture play in shaping our community.

Glenbow is launching a $115M capital campaign to achieve this organizational evolution. We are seeking a Vice President, Advancement to join the newly appointed President and CEO, to provide strategic fundraising and communications leadership that will support the transformation of the Glenbow into a leading art museum.

The announcement of Nicholas Bell joining Glenbow as President and CEO is creating buzz across the museum and gallery community. Prior to Glenbow, Nicholas was Senior Vice-President for Curatorial Affairs at Mystic Seaport Museum in Connecticut, and the Fleur and Charles Bresler curator-in-charge of the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s Renwick Gallery. Bell is a proven change agent, with a track record of revitalizing major institutions, demonstrating their worth to expanded audiences. His relaunch of the Renwick increased visitation by nearly one thousand percent. Bell is also an accomplished scholar who has authored or edited 10 books on art, museums and contemporary culture. He will lead Glenbow into a new era as he focuses colleagues, patrons, governments and the community on a full transformation of its building and exhibit spaces to become Calgary’s cultural hub.

The Vice President, Advancement will evolve fundraising activities, constituent communication strategies, government and community relations, foundation giving, grants, individual giving, corporate sponsorships, annual giving, membership services, special events, and other types of funding and external relations programs. You will mobilize an invigorated Board of Governors and senior leadership to achieve their campaign, endowment and ongoing fundraising goals. You will inspire a team to be bold in developing innovative revenue generating offerings that fund exhibits, operations, and educational programs.

Glenbow’s Vice President, Advancement is an accomplished and admired practitioner known for leading-edge advancement strategy. You are approachable and authentic and are experienced at engaging diverse stakeholder groups that may include government, donors, Indigenous peoples and the public. Your sincere interest in shaping a city’s cultural landscape is palpable.

Join the team at Glenbow as we are poised to explore new paradigms for how an art museum can engage the public in dialogue of who we were, are, and strive to be.
