    SENIOR PREPARATOR

    Colby College Museum of Art

    Full-Time, Exempt, Salaried, Administrative Staff Appointment

    The senior preparator is a multifaceted, multi-skilled position, entrusted with the physical care and handling and installation of the museum’s art collection and exhibition loans. The senior preparator is responsible for the handling, movement, preparation, matting, framing, installing, and packing of artwork in the collection of the Museum and on loan to the Museum. The position requires a high level of responsibility and skillful prioritization, and the senior preparator must be able to multi-task effectively and manage several projects at once. Working closely with colleagues on the collections and curatorial and engagement teams, this position will be called upon to help with all matters pertaining to the physical production of an exhibition as well as ongoing stewardship and daily care of the collection. The senior preparator is responsible for identifying, hiring, and training a skilled crew of part-time art handling personnel and effectively coordinating teamwork on installations and collection care.

    Founded in 1959, the Colby College Museum of Art is a teaching museum, destination for American art, and a place for engagement with local and global communities. Located on the Colby College campus in Waterville, Maine, the Museum holds more than 10,000 works of art and offers more than 38,000 square feet of exhibition space. Major works by American artists including Albert Bierstadt, Winslow Homer, James McNeill Whistler, Mary Cassatt, and William Merritt Chase form the core of the historical collection, along with significant holdings of American folk art. The modern movement is represented by artists including John Marin, Marsden Hartley, Georgia O’Keeffe, Jacob Lawrence, Joan Mitchell, Isamu Noguchi, and Alma Thomas. The Museum also maintains a significant collection of contemporary American art including works by Alex Katz, Agnes Martin, Sol LeWitt, Maya Lin, Kara Walker, Elizabeth Murray, Martin Puryear, Terry Winters, and Julie Mehretu. Other principal areas of the collection include Greek and Roman antiquities, European prints and drawings, and early Chinese art. 

    Works in the collection strengthen the Museum’s mission to offer Colby students new perspectives on their classroom studies and expand their understanding of diverse subjects through art. The recent donation of more than 1,500 artworks from Paula and Peter Lunder expands that scope, and the creation of the Lunder Institute for American Art enhances the Museum’s engagement with scholarly and creative production. The Museum welcomes more than 3,500 Maine school children each year and offers a vibrant calendar of family and public programs that are free and open to all. In addition, the Museum serves as a key contributor to the revitalization of downtown Waterville through its membership in Waterville Creates! and its active participation in the programmatic initiatives of Colby College. 

    Established in 2017, the Lunder Institute for American Art supports innovative research and creative production that expands the boundaries of American art. The Lunder Institute invites visiting artists, scholars, and fellows to engage across disciplines with Colby faculty and students, the College’s network of institutional partners, leading experts, and other creative collaborators. Through incubator grants, fellowships, and symposia addressing regional and global concerns, the Lunder Institute amplifies marginalized voices, challenges convention, and provides a platform for generative dialogue through art and scholarship.

    ABOUT THE FIRST AMENDMENT MUSEUM

    The First Amendment Museum is a nonpartisan, not-for-profit 501(c) 3 concept museum that has been established in Augusta, Maine, with the purpose of examining the history and promoting the practice and understanding of the First Amendment to the U.S. Constitution by developing a landmark museum with innovative exhibits and engaging programming. The organization seeks to engage the citizens of our state and nation through programs and a national partnership network that will engage new generations of Americans and others with the freedoms guaranteed by the First Amendment.

    At the heart of this effort is the need to examine the First Amendment in a historical and contemporary, nonpartisan perspective. As the First Amendment states, “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise hereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.”

    Amazingly, studies have found that increasingly, fewer and fewer Americans can name the five rights protected by the First Amendment and a recent 2018 poll found that 40 percent of Americans could not name even one of the five rights. The inspiration for this organization is the need to change this trend, with the mission of inspiring all Americans to live and love their First Amendment freedoms.
