Carol Bates Fellowship Baltimore, MD
The Walters Art Museum
The Carol Bates Fellowship 2017-2018
Job Location: Education
The Walters Art Museum is accepting applicants for the Carol Bates Fellowship. In June 2018, the Walters will re-open One West Mount Vernon Place, the historic house that is part of the Walters campus. With the revitalization of One West, the Walters is taking a dynamic new approach to the presentation of art while preserving a building that is an architectural treasure all undertaken with the goal of enriching the visitor experience.
This project promises to make art more accessible and meaningful to more people and to connect the Walters and its collection more closely with the people and concerns of the City of Baltimore.
The transformation of One West includes the creation of a new studio space that invites visitors of all ages to create their own works of art, using tools and materials that are both unique and fun. The Bates Fellow will work with museum staff to create a dynamic curriculum for this space. The fellow will research Walters programs well as other museums interactive spaces. Based on this research he/she will write and implement “drop-in” style lessons for the One West space. The fellow will need to consider certain elements that are unique to the creation of lessons in a museum setting: selecting of museum-safe materials, usability of lessons for inter-generational audiences as well as creating relevancies for new audiences to the collection. Lessons will employ best practices for art making and educational pedagogy, encourage visitors to create either by themselves or with others, and make meaningful connections between the themes presented in One West Mt. Vernon, The Walters, and visitors’ own lives.
Not only will the fellow be responsible for the creation of lessons but he/she will also make recommendations for the purchasing of materials and the maintenance and staffing of the space. He/she will analyze the successes and challenges of the space once it opens.
We seek creative individuals who are either enrolled in or are recent graduates of Museum Studies, Museum Education, Education, Fine Arts, Art History or Liberal Arts programs.
Special preference will be given to candidates who have experience in creating and conducting innovative lesson plans for informal learning environments. Excellent customer relations and communication skills are essential. This fellowship is a 32-hour per week position at $17 per hour, and runs for 10 months. Some weekend and night work may be required. This fellowship is privately funded and provides a stipend plus health benefits.
For consideration, send your letter of interest and curriculum vitae to jobs@thewalters.org. Application end date is September 29, 2017.
