Endowments for Curatorial Positions

Curator of Education
The Curator of Education supports the Allen Memorial Art Museum’s outreach to a broad audience beyond Oberlin College, understanding the important civic role art museums play. Since its founding in 1917, the museum has always been open free of charge to all and is committed to providing the public the same quality of learning and exposure to the permanent collection that is extended to the College.

The Curator is responsible for developing a range of educational programming, including tours for children and adults, public workshops, Community Day events for the family, Sunday Object Talks, the annual Oberlin Chalk Walk event, lectures, concerts, film screenings, and teacher in-service workshops. The Curator of Education also develops and implements K-12 educational programming. As tours are always provided free of charge, the AMAM engages with a range of educational systems including public, private, and charter schools across a wide socio-economic spectrum (rural, urban, privileged, disadvantaged).

The AMAM believes that the study of art is an essential part of education for everyone, and endowment of the Curator of Education position will provide dedicated staff to allow the museum to support the communities we serve in perpetuity.
