Development and Design Associate

The Cyrus Dallin Art Museum is seeking a part-time Development and Design Associate to play a key role in helping the museum raise the funds necessary to fulfill its mission and build support for the museum in the business and cultural community. This position entails two primary responsibilities: help develop, manage, and grow a new “Friends of the Dallin Museum” stewardship program and produce the Museum’s bi-annual newsletter The Scout.

The Friends of the Dallin Museum will comprise a group of 5-10 supporters (ie. Dallin family members, business and community leaders) who will work with the Board of Directors in an advisory and fundraising capacity. The Associate will be responsible for managing the logistics of one annual meeting, coordinating communications with members, and developing a plan for the growth of this stewardship program. Responsibilities related to the newsletter include content development, design, and production. The Associate will also seek out newsletter sponsors and new avenues for distribution across multiple platforms.

This position is approximately 5 hours per month (10 hours during months with a newsletter deadline), and is ideal for a stay-at-home-parent wishing to continue his/her career development on a very part-time basis. The Associate will work closely with the Museum’s Director/Curator and Board of Directors. Requirements: Excellent oral and written communication skills; experience with nonprofit fundraising and donor cultivation; experience with digital and print marketing and advertising; and proficiency with graphic design software. Museum experience a plus. Compensation: $15/hour.

Please send letter and resume to Heather Leavell, Director/Curator at hleavell@dallin.org by October 31, 2017.

New Exhibit Labels and Wall Panels to be Installed

Thanks to the support of the Arlington Cultural Council, the Dallin Museum is finishing the production of beautiful, full-color interpretive panels for the Museum’s front hall and new exhibit labels throughout the galleries. These new resources vastly improve our ability to provide our visitors with meaningful experiences that enhance their appreciation of Cyrus Dallin’s art. Here’s a sneak preview of our Dallin timeline designed by Museum Trustee and artist Chris Costello.
