Reporting to the Dean of Humanities, the Director provides direction and oversight to Rodman Hall staff, ensuring:
· the continuation of an acclaimed set of professional programmes, including exhibitions, interpretation, education, community outreach, and special events;
· preservation and development of the permanent collection congruent with Rodman Hall’s Category A designation;
· ongoing development of audiences and community connections;
· continued provision of innovative support to Brock faculty and students, with special but not exclusive focus upon the Department of Visual Arts and other components of the Marilyn I. Walker School of Fine and Performing Arts.
Beyond administrative responsibility for the Rodman Hall Art Centre -- including strategic planning, financial management, human resources management, and program evaluation – the Director performs a role of liaison and cultivation with current and prospective supporters and funders.
Rodman Hall Art Centre is in a period of transition, as plans are made for its future as an independent public art museum providing contracted pedagogical and research services to Brock University. The new Director will work with the Advisory Board and other stakeholders to provide Rodman Hall’s input into a comprehensive transition plan, and participate in facilitating that transition.
What you Need to Succeed…
The successful candidate will possess extensive senior management experience in the cultural sector, preferably within art museums or related institutions.
