- EDUCATION AND COMMUNITY OUTREACH FELLOW
- The Education and Community Outreach Fellowship offers an early-career individual an exciting opportunity to define, develop, and execute educational and outreach initiatives that further the museum’s mission to become more accessible to broader audiences and highlight the richness and diversity of American art and culture. Duties include designing, providing, and overseeing educational programing that will engage visitors (children, teens, and adults) in the galleries, in schools, and online. The Fellow will gain skills in community outreach & engagement, public speaking, teaching & learning, object interpretation, and museum management.
About OMAA: Celebrating its artistic heritage and origins in Ogunquit’s art colonies, the Ogunquit Museum of American Art engages and educates a diverse audience by acquiring, preserving, exhibiting, and interpreting American art. Opened in 1953, OMAA was founded by Lost Generation artist Henry Strater. Closely tied to one of the earliest art colonies of the American modernist art movement, OMAA today houses a permanent collection of paintings, sculpture, drawings, prints, film, and photographs from the late 1800s to the present. The museum showcases American art by mounting seasonal modern and contemporary exhibitions and programs. OMAA’s seaside landscape—a three-acre sculpture park containing 18 small gardens—complements its exhibitions and overlooks Narrow Cove and the Atlantic Ocean.
