Creative Careers Job Round-Up: Curator Edition

Creative Careers Job Round-Up: Curator Edition

Do you view an empty room and white walls as a blank canvas? 

Are you an art buff with an eye for organizing a collection of works into something cohesive but also inspiring? If so, you may be headed down the well regarded curator path. The number of curator positions has exploded in the last decade as new galleries and art fairs pop up every year, giving way to an ever-growing art market. The increased number of jobs aren’t easy positions to fill, however, as highly sought after curators possess specific skills mostly cultivated by post graduate education, hands on experience, and proper training. If you think you fit the bill already or you’re ready to begin the learning process, check out some of NYFA’s recent curator listings. From Florida to California, internships to full time positions, there are opportunities for everyone!
