University of Wisconsin–Madison
The director will shape the future direction of the museum and will be the guiding force in its philosophy, strategic planning, programming, and management. The director is expected to generate new initiatives, and to infuse the Chazen with vision, energy, and excitement.

The collection continues to grow thanks to artwork donations and purchases. The collection is funded entirely by private money. The museum also presents temporary exhibitions, broadening the offerings to visitors and as a state educational resource, the Chazen offers a rich array of public programs.
