Museum of Art

Audience Engagement Specialist
Education and Interpretation
The Cleveland Museum of Art seeks qualified candidates for its new Audience
Engagement Specialist position. As a key member of the Department of
Education and Interpretation, the Audience Engagement Specialist works
closely with the Director of Interpretation and the museum-wide Program
Sub-Committee to reinvigorate educational public programming at CMA for
intergenerational audiences, with particular emphasis on university
students, young professionals, and youth and family audiences. Responsible
for programming the museum’s collections and exhibitions beyond the lecture
and symposium, this position will help to generate innovative in-gallery
experiences, artist demonstrations, and art-making activities. The Audience
Engagement Specialist will also help to conceive and stage events for the
39,000 square-foot atrium, a civic space at the heart of the museum’s
campus, and for the Transformer Station on Cleveland’s West Side. Special
emphasis should be placed on programs that can attract members of the
Cleveland and Northeast Ohio communities who have not yet connected with the
museum. Forging relevant community partnerships will be key to the
successful reinvigoration of CMA’s educational programming.
Qualified candidates will have a Bachelor’s degree in an art-related field
and a minimum of two years of related museum or art-space experience and/or
training, or equivalent combination of education and experience. An M.A. in
art, museum studies, or art history is preferred. Candidates should possess
excellent interpersonal, communication, and organizational skills, as well
as the ability to prioritize work projects and work well under pressure to
meet deadlines. Knowledge of museum audiences and interpretive strategies is
important. Previous experience with word-processing software and accounting
spreadsheet software is helpful.
