Position Overview: The Arkansas Arts Center seeks an enthusiastic and detail-oriented Assistant Registrar to work as part of a team to assist in planning and implementing all aspects related to the museum’s internationally renowned collection and all matters related to special exhibitions that emanate from, travel to, or are organized by the Arkansas Arts Center. The Assistant Registrar will be responsible for a broad range of registration functions including cataloguing, organizing artwork transport and storage, maintaining paperwork related to the collection, and managing exhibition files and history. The Arkansas Arts Center is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums and values the importance of working within the highest professional standards.
The Arkansas Arts Center is in the midst of an extensive renovation and expansion of its facilities in MacArthur Park, Little Rock, Arkansas. The building project period began in October 2019 with work expected to conclude in mid-2022. Meanwhile, the AAC has moved to a 65,000 square foot temporary location to continue its operations. The Exhibitions Department, in particular, has significantly scaled down their exhibition production schedule. During this period, the team has a unique opportunity to dedicate most of its time to collections stewardship including a full collections inventory and rehousing project. The Assistant Registrar will provide critical support for these tasks and play a key role in the preparation of our future facilities.
