Pamela and Peter Voss Curator of Prints and Drawings

The Department of Prints and Drawings at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston invites applicants for the position of Pamela and Peter Voss Curator of Prints and Drawings.

The Voss Curator will be part of a close-knit curatorial team and will also work closely with conservators and collections care specialists in the MFA’s Virginia Herrick Deknatel Paper Conservation Laboratory. In liaison with colleagues from across the Museum, the Voss Curator will have the opportunity to advance the Museum’s strategic plan by developing and contributing significantly to exhibitions, installations, programs, collections research, and acquisitions. The Voss Curator will support critical administrative tasks including responding to scholarly and public inquiries related to the collection and undertaking paperwork for acquisitions as well as the department’s outgoing loan program. As with all team members in Prints and Drawings, the Voss Curator will actively engage in the vital responsibility of deeper cataloguing and documentation of the current collection and support public-facing activities in the Morse Study Room. The Voss Curator will also help manage donor relationships and assist with programming for the department’s Curators Circle, its friends and support group. The ideal candidate will champion collaboration and help galvanize excitement around prints and drawings by building connections across the whole range of its collection, engaging directly with its historical depth, and envisioning new ways to make this material accessible, relevant and important to the lives of our visitors today.
Prints and Drawings collaborates and engages closely with colleagues across the Museum and supports in critical ways the initiatives of the Center for Netherlandish Art, an innovative research center at the MFA for the study and appreciation of Dutch and Flemish Art. The department is committed to ensure visitor and student access to the collection through the Morse Study Room for Prints, Drawings, and Photographs. We also embrace our responsibility as a place of training and engagement with works on paper through our internship and fellowship programs.
