In its permanent home since 1971, the OU’s Fred Jones Jr. Museum of Art has 40,000 square feet of exhibition space, including permanent and rotating galleries, and features a 150-seat auditorium, an orientation room and classroom space. Major collections include the Eugene B. Adkins Collection of Art of the American Southwest and Native American Art, the James T. Bialac Native American Art Collection, and the Weitzenhoffer Collection of French Impressionist Art, providing a world-class resource for teaching and research.
As the chief Administrative Officer of the museum, the Director reports directly to the Senior Vice President and Provost of the University, and is responsible for administering the operations and management of the Museum of Art and related activities. These include scholarly programs, the supervision of the art museum staff, exhibitions, exhibition schedule, educational materials, fund raising, budget management, and outreach effort to the university and community. The Director will continue to build the reputation of the museum on a regional, national, and international level.
We seek an energetic, dynamic leader, with a commitment to collaboration with faculty, students, staff and the OU community, and in fulfilling the mission of a University museum. The University of Oklahoma and the College of Fine Arts are dedicated to inclusivity, seeking excellent applicants from a diversity of backgrounds in scholarly and professional interests, as well as in gender and ethnicity.
