The Cedar Rapids Museum of Art seeks an outstanding and experienced Registrar to provide vision and leadership in collection and database management. The CRMA occupies a 63,000-square-foot facility, two-thirds of which is an exhibition and collection storage wing designed by Charles Moore in 1989. The CRMA’s collection numbers more than 7,000 objects, primarily 20th-century American paintings and prints, as well as smaller collections of sculpture and decorative arts, European prints, and Roman antiquities. It is home to the largest collection of works by Grant Wood, who lived and worked in Cedar Rapids. The CRMA also owns and operates the nearby Grant Wood Studio, where Wood lived and worked from 1924 to 1935. Part of a vibrant arts community in Iowa, the CRMA has an exciting and active exhibition schedule. Metro Cedar Rapids (population 255,000) is adjacent to the cultural attractions of several colleges and universities, including The University of Iowa, Iowa City. The Registrar is a key component in the Curatorial team, helping oversee collections storage and conservation, database management, loans, exhibition installation, and acquisitions.
Highly desired qualifications include: B.A. in art history or related field, thorough knowledge of registration practices, 3-5 years of registration experience, strong computer skills, and database experience. Competitive salary commensurate with experience.
