Gallery Teacher

Gallery Teachers facilitate museum experiences for visitors of all ages, with the goals of building confidence in looking at art, providing tools for engaging with a wide range of visual art, and forging connections between visitors and the works of art on view. Gallery Teachers will lead a variety of museum-wide tours for visitors of all ages, which include interactive discussions and hands-on art-making activities. The position also involves engaging visitors in the Kidspace gallery through conversations around the artwork and providing art-making activities at the ArtBar, and assisting with in-person public programming.

The ideal candidate will have a background in education or the arts; at least 1 year work experience is preferred. The candidate should be skilled as an effective communicator; can work independently, but also as a team player; and has an outgoing, positive personality and a knack for connecting with people of many backgrounds.

About this Organization:
Since opening in 1999, MASS MoCA has become one of the world's premier centers for making and showing the best art of our time. With annual attendance of 120,000, it ranks among the most visited institutions in the United States dedicated to new art. More than 80 major new works of art and more than 50 performances have been created through fabrication and rehearsal residencies in North Adams, making MASS MoCA perhaps the most fertile site in the country for new art. The museum thrives on making and presenting work that is fresh, surprising, and challenging.

Visual arts
MASS MoCA exhibits work by many of the most important artists of today—both well known, and emerging—focusing on large-scale and complex installations that are impossible to realize in conventional museums. Our broad, soaring galleries with 110,000 square feet of open, flexible space and their robust industrial character have proven both inspiring and empowering to artists.

Performing arts
An essential and integral part of MASS MoCA's mission are the more than 75 performances staged year-round, including popular music, contemporary dance, alternative cabaret, world music dance parties, outdoor silent films with live music, documentaries, and avant-garde theater.
