Williams College is looking for a Museum Project Director to oversee a major upcoming investment in the design and construction of a new home for our Williams College Museum of Art (WCMA). The new museum grows out of Williams’ commitment to the arts—a commitment that has defined us for over a century. Each year, faculty, students, and museum staff incorporate our collections into dozens of courses, ranging from art history to anthropology, biology, environmental studies, and mathematics, while our curators mount exhibitions that engage campus and diverse public audiences. The new museum’s educational and exhibition spaces will open up new possibilities for our work with campus and community. This is far more than a building. It’s the next step in Williams’ commitment to the vibrancy, relevance, and educational importance of the arts.
This is a full-time term position for the duration of the project, with an initial six year term. As the Museum Project Director, you will act as the main point of contact for the new build, providing oversight of the Owner’s Project Manager, Skanska; the Architect, SO-IL; and the various construction teams throughout the WCMA building project. This position will interface between the external teams, campus & community stakeholders, and town officials; including working closely with the current Director of the Museum and her staff, and chairing the building committees, and developing board presentations for progress updates and necessary approvals.
Robust engagement with campus stakeholders will be crucial to the success of this project. Communication on the Williams campus can be complicated and challenging. Sufficiently understanding the stakeholders and their perspectives will lead to the overall success of the project.
This position is based primarily on campus. Pay range is from $120,000 and up, commensurate with experience. Job band 2-C. Please visit https://staff-careers.williams.edu/ to apply - all applications will be reviewed by the search committee.
