Celebrating its 50th anniversary in 2022, Boulder Museum of Contemporary Art (BMoCA) is at an exciting time in its history. Over the past decade, the museum has reached new heights thanks to record-breaking attendance numbers, dramatic programmatic growth, and the critical support of its community. BMoCA is now bursting at the seams, and in 2022, the museum will launch a capital campaign to support an expansion of its facilities. With an expanded facility, BMoCA will be able to realize its vision of becoming a leader in the global conversation about art and culture.

The candidate should also have excellent interpersonal skills, communication skills, and strong attention to detail, as well as the ability to multitask, solve problems, think creatively, and prioritize in a fast- paced environment. The Curator supervises the Curatorial Department and works collaboratively and collegially with all museum departments including education, development, exhibitions and interpretation, marketing, finance, and outreach to further the mission and vision of the institution. In partnership with museum leadership, the curator develops and monitors curatorial department budgets. The Curator reports to the Executive Director and Chief Curator.
