The Arkansas Arts Center (AAC), located in Little Rock, AR, seeks a senior fundraising professional to advance the institution 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 accompanying successful $128 million capital campaign, which has now raised $122.7 million, is funding the project and expanding the endowment. The AAC is an active partner in the educational, economic and cultural life of a diverse community; inviting discovery, creativity and learning through engagement with the visual and performing arts.
The Director of Development is a key strategic position responsible for advancing the annual fundraising program to support the AAC in its new incarnation and beyond. The Director of Development will report to and work closely with the Executive Director, and actively interface with donors, Board members, department directors, and other stakeholders.
