The Williams College Museum of Art (WCMA) seeks an Associate Curator of Campus and Community Engagement (ACE).
Anchored by excellence in teaching, this position centralizes lifelong learning with works of art through college-wide collaborations, regional partnerships, and socially engaged programming at WCMA. The ACE is a dedicated art museum professional whose practice stems from an interdisciplinary study of works of art with strengths in student engagement, community-based work, and DEIA. Committed to racial equity in all we do, the ACE plays a critical role in making the museum a platform for creativity and innovation, curricular learning and co-curricular life, civic and cultural engagement. Situated within a dynamic engagement team, we seek an innovative practitioner who values an experimental approach to public practice and who thinks rigorously about teaching and learning in the context of the museum visit. As a “teacher of teachers” overseeing student educators, the ACE is an essential museum partner in developing a genuinely inclusive, equitable, sustainable, and accessible museum for the college and as a model for the field. Professional development and active contribution to museum fields are supported. Research, reflection, and evaluation are instrumental to our work and integrated into a holistic process of our own institutional learning about the role of a college art museum on campus and in the world.
