The Arkansas Arts Center (AAC), located in Little Rock, AR, seeks an Associate Curator to join the staff during an extraordinary transformation that includes the construction of a new state-of-the-art facility, scheduled to open in 2022. Designed by the renowned architecture firm, Studio Gang, the new facility will secure the Arkansas Arts Center’s position as one of the top cultural institutions in the state and region. The new Arts Center will feature state-of-the-art galleries, Museum School, theatre, lecture hall, outdoor event area, and other spaces to host programming, classes, and performances. The innovative Cultural Living Room, restaurant, store, and landscaped grounds will position the AAC as a cultural hub for Little Rock and the Delta region.
The Associate Curator is responsible for forwarding the institution through the research, development, and implementation of engaging and innovative special exhibitions, artist-based projects and initiatives, and the presentation of the AAC’s permanent collection of nearly 14,000 works of art. Reporting to the Chief Curator, the Associate Curator will work closely with the Executive Director, Curatorial and Education Department staff, and community partners to ensure the presentation of art reflects and is relevant to the community and inspires thoughtful conversation and engagement with the Arts Center.
