|Background:||Glenstone, a museum of modern and contemporary art, is integrated into 200 acres of gently rolling pasture and unspoiled woodland in Montgomery County, Maryland, less than 15 miles from the heart of Washington, DC. Glenstone strives to provide visitors with a unique experience through the seamless integration of art, architecture, and landscape. Established by the not-for-profit Glenstone Foundation, the museum, known as the Gallery, opened in 2006 and provides a contemplative, intimate setting for experiencing iconic works of art and architecture within a natural environment. Glenstone presents extraordinary outdoor sculptures and installations within a landscape designed by Peter Walker and Partners and selections from an art collection of significant depth and breadth in the Gallery building by the late Charles Gwathmey of Gwathmey Siegel & Associates Architects. Admission is always free, and visits are scheduled by appointment to encourage an unhurried, intimate engagement between the viewers and their surroundings.
Glenstone is now in the midst of constructing a second museum building, The Pavilions, measuring 170,000 square feet and designed by Thomas Phifer and Partners, as well as a new public entrance, an arrival gallery with a bookstore, a café and an expanded landscape. These new facilities will enhance the visitor experience and provide significantly more space for exhibiting Glenstone’s superlative collection of post-World War II artworks.
|Job Purpose:||The Head of Installation will play a critical role in the opening of Glenstone’s expansion, overseeing and participating in all aspects of the installation of the permanent collection and temporary exhibitions in the galleries. Supporting the Director of Registration, the Head of Installation will be responsible for packing and crating works of art and all matters pertaining to the safe handling, movement and care of artwork in the collection. The Head of Installation will manage temporary and contract art handling personnel, delegating work assignments among installation staff in order to assure the timely completion of all work at the highest level of quality.|
