Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park & Museum

Executive Director

Posted:
Jan 28, 2021
Position Summary
Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park & Museum seeks a dynamic and experienced Executive Director to drive its mission of engaging diverse audiences in the critically important dialogue between art and nature. The Executive Director must advance the Park’s position as a leading cultural institution within the tri-state region and its reputation nationally among outdoor sculpture parks. This will include building the organization in terms of staffing, program and budget to achieve a sustainable and mission driven institution. The Executive Director will be the lead fundraiser responsible for cultivating donor relationships, securing financial grants and seeking other revenue streams to strengthen its financial position for future investments and long-term sustainability. 

Background
Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park & Museum is a unique institution comprising three extraordinary resources: its outdoor sculpture, its Ancient Sculpture Museum and Pyramid House, and its forested Ohio valley landscape. Established in 1998 as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, the Park’s mission is to bring people to art in nature. Since its founding over 20 years ago, Pyramid Hill has grown into a picturesque venue of over 300 acres and more than 60 outdoor sculptures. The Park offers visitors the ability to experience its monumental outdoor sculpture collection in an inspiring landscape of rolling hills, meadows, lakes, and hiking trails. The Ancient Sculpture Museum, featuring Greek, Roman, Etruscan, Syrian, and Egyptian objects dating to 1550 B.C., provides visitors with an opportunity to examine three-dimensional art from its origins to the most contemporary examples. In addition to ancient sculpture, the Museum exhibits contemporary work by local, regional, and national artists. Through the generosity of founder Harry Wilks, who passed away in 2014, the Park has become a draw for visitors and residents alike. 

Pyramid Hill has established the highly successful holiday light show “Borealis” which attracted over 50,000 visitors in 2020. Other notable annual programs include an Art and Music Festival, an Art and Earth Celebration as well as collaborations with the Fitton Center, The Carnegie, the Cincinnati Chamber Orchestra and other prominent arts organizations in the region. In addition to programming highlights, Pyramid Hill has grown its campus which now comprises the historic register site “Fortified Hill,” a 150+ acre site containing Hopewell Indian mounds and  ceremonial ground. To support the conservation and maintain accessibility to the 2,000-year-old earth sculpture, Pyramid Hill has formed a committee of archeologists, Native Americans and community stakeholders. 

In preparation for its 25th Anniversary in 2022, Pyramid Hill is developing plans for a Capital Campaign to support a new Visitor Center. For more information, visit www.pyramidhill.org.

Mission & Strategic Plan
Pyramid Hill inspires and educates its diverse visitors in a world-renowned setting of art and nature. It strives to be a center of community life. With its landscape and collection as catalyst for dialog, collaboration and contemplation, Pyramid Hill presents a broad variety of programs for audiences of all ages including tours, lectures, concerts, summer camps, and an annual holiday lights installation. The Pyramid Hill Board has articulated the following strategic goals to support the Park’s continued growth and success: 

1. An enhanced Visitor Experience  
2. An original program uniting the art collection, exhibitions, educational programs and collaborative partnerships.
3. Park and Collections Maintenance
4. Fiscal Sustainability

The new Executive Director will build on these core initiatives to fulfill Pyramid Hill’s mission. The best candidates will combine the skills, experience, and vision to achieve the issues articulated below.

Position Description

Opportunities and Challenges
As the Pyramid Hill looks ahead to its 25th anniversary, a key opportunity is to lead the board through a planning process to develop a long-term vision and plan to advance the Park’s future and sustainability.  This will result in a new staffing structure and an implementation plan and  budget to balance an original program with the services, amenities and maintenance of a park environment.  A priority will be to build collaborative partnerships with the local nature, plant science and art organizations to improve the experience and quality of the Pyramid Hill campus.

Contemporary Arts Center

Request for Proposals

Posted:
Jan 20, 2021
This RFP invites graphic designers currently based in the Midwest to submit a proposal for the exhibition identity of a large-scale group exhibition, The Regional, being co-organized by moCa Cleveland (moCa) and the Contemporary Arts Center (CAC), Cincinnati. Opening at moCa in July of 2021 and traveling to the CAC in the fall, the full scope of project, once selected, includes the exhibition’s identity & graphics as well as the design of a digital publication. 

Project Deliverables
Logo & Typeface for Exhibition Collateral (wall text, brochure, interpretative materials)
Digital Publication 
Social Media Content (digital engagement and outreach campaign assets)

About the Exhibition
Works by 25 artists based in the Midwest are presented as a part of a collaborative survey exhibition celebrating emerging and under-recognized artists living and working throughout America’s heartland. Featuring painting, photography, installation, and performance by artists living in Detroit, Cincinnati, Chicago, Cleveland, Columbus, Indianapolis, Kansas City, Madison, Minneapolis, and Saint Louis, among others, the exhibition provides an important platform for a generation of artists who are shaping the current discourse of contemporary art and the future of culture.

Loosely defined as the area that stretches from the Dakotas in the west along the Great Lakes to Michigan and Ohio in the east and from the north in Minnesota adjacent to the Mississippi River through Illinois, Iowa and Missouri, the Midwest is a construct bounded by geography, but also a set of shared historical commonalities. Partially encompassing the “Rust Belt,” a site of 20th century industrial growth marked by subsequent declines and more recent resurgences, it is also linked by histories that includes the early abolition of slavery and the underground railroad network; as well as immigration, namely by Germans, Irish, and Scandinavian in the mid 19th century, and more recently by asylum seekers from countries as varied as Vietnam, Iraq, and Somalia.

Refusing any singular unifying theme, The Regional celebrates the diversity of contexts,
perspectives, and concerns present in the middle section of America. Bringing together a wide variety of artists and contextualizing their different approaches, the exhibition allows for diverse ways of making sense of the world, opening up our reading of objects and images, gestures and situations, histories, and futures. The exhibition is accompanied by a comprehensive digital catalogue, and a robust series of virtual and small group public programming.

The 1st edition of The Regional is co-organized by Amara Antilla, Contemporary Arts Center, Cincinnati, Courtenay Finn, moCa Cleveland, and Jade Powers, Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art, Kansas City.

Eligibility
The RFP is open to all designers currently based in the Midwest. Teams and collaborative practices are encouraged to apply.
 
How to Apply
Please send a portfolio of recent work, a short bio or CV, and a short note expressing your interest in the project to  theregional@mocacleveland.org.  Submissions will be accepted until February 1, 2021.

Each application must include the following:

- Pronouns
- Email address and phone number
- Portfolio of past projects

Each of the shorlisted designers will receive a modest honorarium of $300 for their time during the proposal process. Once selected, the awarded designer will receive a fee of $12,000 which encompasses work on the exhibition identity and publication design. 
 
Judging
A panel including the exhibition curators, will review and evaluate proposals and ideas based on:
- Visual impact and creativity

What is CG&E Commons?
As part of the East Price Hill 2019 Neighborhood Enhancement Program (NEP), East Price Hill was awarded funding from Councilmember P.G.

The project will reuse and repurpose the architectural pieces conserved by residents during the demolition of this historic building to design a space where residents can gather, enjoy the park adjacent to the lot, and walk the business district.
