Cranbrook Art Museum (CAM) seeks a full-time curator to help develop exciting and engaging public programs both on-site at its historic landmark campus and off-site in the City of Detroit.

The successful candidate will build upon the museum’s innovative public art projects and programs that since 2015 have ranged from performances by artist Nick Cave; the creation of a skate park by artist Ryan McGinness; a participatory video project by Hank Willis Thomas and the Cause Collective; an iteration of artist Michelangelo Pistoletto’s Third Paradise by musician Tunde Olaniran and the Mosaic Youth Choir of Detroit; and Bone Black, a large-scale installation by artist Scott Hocking.

The successful candidate will also be responsible for programming CAM’s Free Thursday night events that typically feature artist talks, workshops, screenings, or performances as well as helping to conceive and execute new seasonal projects on the museum’s grounds. A continued priority is engaging diverse audiences and communities across Southeast Michigan and helping us build a more inclusive museum experience and community.
