Curator, Davison Art Collection


Reporting to the University Librarian, the Curator has primary oversight of Wesleyan’s Davison Art Collection, which houses over 25,000 objects, including a world-class collection of prints well as photographs, drawings, and other items.

The Curator is responsible for integrating this collection into the intellectual life of the University by encouraging and facilitating its use in classes and in student projects and by working in collaboration with faculty, staff, students, and the Associate Director of Visual Arts, who manages the University’s exhibition program, to display publicly objects from the collection. In addition, the Curator is the principal steward of the Collection and oversees acquisitions, cataloguing and publications, and maintaining financial and loan records.

Primary responsibilities include:

Develop and organize, in collaboration with the Associate Director of Visual Art, exhibitions that will draw principally on the holdings of the Davison Art Center’s collection, thereby providing dynamic public programming.

Collaborate with a variety of academic departments and constituencies across campus and, in particular, the Department of Art and Art History, the Art Library, Special Collections and Archives, and the Center for the Arts.
