Job Postings: Jobs from archivesgig

Archivist / Cataloguer Librarian, Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, Bentonville, AR

This position seems to be largely institutional archives for the art museum, but prefers art cataloguing experience.


Senior Archivist, Heritage Werks, Atlanta, GA

This position requires five years’ experience, but is a contract-based consultancy firm that serves a variety of clients, which I take to mean that an art specialization might be a choice thing to offer.


Museum Curator (Art / Photography), Smithsonian, Washington, DC

Surprisingly, this position requires only bachelors-level experience in curation.


Cline Curator of Theatre and Performing Arts, the Ransom Center, University of Texas at Austin

This position is suited to someone who has already completed a terminal degree in English, Theatre, Dance, Performing Arts, or Literature, with a record of scholarly publishing, and has transitioned to LIS work.
