Visiting Curator Position

The museum is outfitted with a collections room which stands apart from the museum’s furnished 19th to early 20th century rooms as a contemporary space for displays and mini-exhibits. The role of the Visiting Curator will be to research, design, and build displays for the collections room. Using artifacts from the museum, these themed displays should then convey information surrounding the Roedde home and/or the historical context to which it belongs. The idea is also for these displays to be “rotating exhibits” that can be remounted again from time to time.

The position aims to give prospective curators the opportunity to see a small-scale exhibition through from its inception to its final installation, where they would be involved in all aspects of the project’s development
