Job Description:

 

The Diefenbunker, Canada’s Cold War Museum seeks a professional leader, skilled in building strong teams, developing business relationships and creating meaningful public programs. The individual, who will assume the role of Executive Director at the Diefenbunker, must be capable of designing and implementing a long-term sustainability plan for the museum. The candidate should have an understanding of the needs and value of curatorial collections and of the exigencies of managing a designated historic site.

The Diefenbunker Museum is a community museum housed inside a National Historic Site, a non-profit, charitable organization committed to the preservation, interpretation and display of Canadian history (and its geopolitical, technological, and cultural implications) during the Cold War. It is located in the town of Carp, Ontario on the outskirts of Ottawa. Constructed in the 1959-61, the Central Emergency Government Headquarters (CEGHQ) at Canadian Forces Station Carp, popularly known as the Diefenbunker, was the flagship of a hierarchy of a cross-country network of government shelters, which were an integral part of Canada’s preparations for a possible nuclear attack on North America.

The ED is ultimately responsible for the management of all of the employees of the Diefenbunker and must have a significant and successful track record in doing so and strong communication skills. The ED additionally plays a crucial role with funding partners such as the City of Ottawa, businesses and a variety of stakeholders and members of the community. The ability to bring a vision for the future, lead a team of diverse professionals, communicate clearly, capture relevant statistics, and to oversee proper financial management, while achieving goals and balancing conflicting priorities are among the key elements of the position. Given the important leadership responsibilities of the position, the ED is also required to maintain a high level of accountability and reliability. As the "face" of the organization and a respected member of the Ontario Museum Association, the ED finds opportunities to collaborate with and enhance museums in the Ottawa Capital region while discovering potential partnerships in Canada and elsewhere.

The ideal candidate will possess a bachelor’s degree in a relevant field of study (e.g. museum studies, business, geography, history, art history, anthropology, archaeology, sociology, art management), combined with seven to ten years of strong managerial and project management expertise or an equivalent combination of both. The candidate will have related experience in administration, fund raising, building relationships, employee management, leading creative teams, communication and public speaking. 

Demonstrated community involvement and a Professional Designation, e.g. CAE (Canadian Society of Association Executives) or AFOP (Association of Fundraising Professionals), or a technical understanding of building systems would be considered assets. 

The ED must be willing to work in accordance with the Diefenbunker Museum core values, and operating principles and to become familiar with the Canadian history of the Cold War.

Job Description:

 

OVERVIEW

The Art Complex Museum (ACM) in Duxbury, Massachusetts seeks a full-time Collections Curator to join the staff of this family-founded museum on the cusp of its 50th anniversary in 2021. The Collections Curator will have the opportunity to develop significant collections-based exhibitions, some of which could travel; to work with staff to conserve, research and catalogue the collections; to develop new programs and interpretations; work with trustees and staff to refine the collections policy; liaise with other museums, scholars, and art professionals to enhance the stature of the collection; and work as a hands-on member of the staff in the daily activities of this small museum. The Collections Curator reports to the Director and works closely with the Collections Manager and the Curator of Contemporary Art. The ACM collection comprises more than 8,000 objects collected by the Weyerhaeuser family plus subsequent acquisitions over the past 50 years and features 4 main categories: American paintings (both historic and contemporary), master prints, Shaker furniture, and Asian art, including a remarkable assemblage of modern Japanese ceramics. The museum actively acquires new work, and selections from the collection are on permanent, rotating view and are complemented by a robust, active program of temporary exhibitions, usually featuring living artists, both regional and national. Programming features concerts, lectures, tea ceremonies, art classes, workshops, and school visits. The ACM has an operating budget of about $1 million and a staff of 12. The 13-acre wooded campus with outdoor sculpture provides a unique encounter with nature and art.

The ACM’s mission encompasses both sharing the collection with a broad public and being an active arts center for regional community engagement, learning and inspiration. The Mission is:
“The intention of the Art Complex is to be a resource to the community it serves, not only as a fine building built entirely of wood, but also as a forum for education to school children, as well as adults, who may visit it, through its library, its art collection and its exhibits. It provides musical and other cultural programs in its facilities, which include a unique, authentic Japanese teahouse where visitors are introduced to the ways of another culture.” In the words of the cofounder, Carl A. Weyerhaeuser, “The purpose for the Art Complex Museum is to collect, house, protect, and display beautiful things for the enjoyment of the public. From this inspiration it is hoped school children, artists, weekend painters, everyone who studies, sees, hears, feels, will leave the Art Complex to do their work better.”

KEY RESPONSIBILITIES:

• Propose, develop and execute a significant exhibition saluting the 50th Anniversary of the ACM in 2021, along with related activities and an anniversary publication.
• Organize collections-based exhibitions every 2-3 years, including research, possible loans, traveling opportunities and related didactics.
• Provide input to the Collections Manager/Registrar and the curatorial staff for creating rotations of the collection in the Rotations Gallery, the entryway gallery and in cases in the library and the hallway.

• Oversee collection research and cataloguing, utilizing the PastPerfect software.
• Work with the Collections Committee and the Director to develop a more detailed Collections Plan, including identifying priorities for conservation and storage improvements; for evaluating and proposing acquisitions and gifts, with conditions for their acceptance or rejection, and for deaccessioning; and for research and cataloguing. Implement deaccessions as approved. 
• Identify and oversee monitoring of best available standards of care and protection for the collection and borrowed works.
• Oversee research and production of publications on the collection and temporary exhibitions and contribute articles to scholarly and popular journals when appropriate and as time permits.
• Give gallery talks and lectures about the Museum, the collections, and current exhibitions related to the collection to a variety of constituents, from volunteers and businesspeople to scholars; and as requested, serve as a face of the museum in the community. 
• Submit information for press releases and, with the Communications Coordinator, suggest publicity materials and approaches for exhibitions.
• Handle departmental administrative duties, including project-planning and priority-setting, overseeing exhibit-installation teams, preparing and monitoring budgets, and preparing regular and annual reports.
• Share the responsibility of museum security and operations with other staff members; be hands-on and available for staffing museum events, including working rotating weekends and occasional evenings.
• Ensure the Museum has a productive professional relationship with peer professionals and institutions locally, regionally and nationally. 

QUALIFICATIONS AND REQUIREMENTS

Education, Training and Experience
• MA or equivalent required in art history or curatorial studies, preferably in an area of strength of the collections, for example Asian ceramics, Shaker arts, prints, or American painting. PhD desirable.

ABOUT THE MUSEUM

The Art Complex Museum opened its doors in 1971 to share with the public the remarkable collection of Carl A. and Edith Greenleaf Weyerhaeuser, and with the broader goal of serving as a regional arts center with active cultural programming. Carl Weyerhaeuser collected rare books, American paintings, Asian art, works on paper including American and European master prints (such as Rembrandt’s 1654 etching Descent from the Cross by Torchlight), and Shaker furniture and crafts. The ACM collection now totals about 8,000 items, including approximately 1,800 works from the collection of Leland and Paula Wyman and others. Its holdings of modern Japanese ceramics and American landscape painting are particularly renowned. Artists in the American collection include Benjamin West, Thomas Doughty, Sanford Gifford, Jaspar Cropsey, George Inness, Albert Bierstadt, Thomas Moran, Childe Hassam, John Singer Sargent, George Bellows and Charles Burchfield. The Japanese ceramics collection largely comprises tea ceremony vessels and utensils collected in Japan in the 1970s from potters at 13 regional kiln sites, including Hagi, Bizen and several Kyoto potteries; and several other historically important pieces, including an early Raku tea bowl by Chojiro. The museum continues to collect Japanese ceramics, especially works by Japanese women potters. The museum features two large galleries totaling 375 running feet of wall space. The Weyerhaeuser Research Library serves the public, scholars and artists with over 8,000 titles, including rare books and manuscripts and artists’ books. The ACM maintains an active, year-round calendar of exhibitions, art classes and workshops, lectures and gallery talks, concerts, and family and adult programs. The beautiful wooded 13-acre campus includes an authentic Japanese teahouse where traditional tea ceremonies are offered in summer, an outdoor sculpture garden, and the historic Judah Alden House, where art classes and small student/faculty exhibitions are held. 

Admission is free, and the ACM is open year-round. The Modernist wood facility was designed by the ACM’s first director Ture Bengtz and architect Richard Owen Abbott. Current Director Charles Weyerhaeuser (BFA, Boston Museum School) is the son of the founders and has served as Director since 1974. The staff of 12 is devoted and mainly long-serving. The Board of Directors comprises 10 members, several of whom are Weyerhaeuser family members. The strong family role in the governance of the museum ensures the continuation of the public-serving legacy of the founders. The ACM is endowed and financially secure; consequently, the Collections Curator is asked to do only passive donor cultivation for collection gifts, not active fundraising or grant-writing.
