PRACTICALITIES
This position is Non-Exempt Full Time with the opportunity for flexible remote work much of the year. However, The Grail, as a movement of women, values collaboration, and community so there is an expectation of regular onsite hours.

The Engagement Coordinator will report to the U.S. Executive Director as part of a small National Office staff (3 ft and 2 pt staff) based outside Loveland, Ohio with typical schedule of 9am-5p, Monday-Friday. However, there will be great flexibility in setting the schedule that best meets the abilities of the Engagement Coordinator tied to continued proven achievement of goals. By the nature of the position,
evening, early morning, and weekend times should be expected.

This is an office-based position that is mostly sedentary, however, during the summer months (May through August) a main responsibility is oversight of the Crew—a work and leadership initiative for young women ages 14-22—which will involve the ability to access 70+ acres of property. The current workspace is up one flight of stairs but can be moved if needed.

This position’s wage begins at $18.00 hour, with bi-weekly pay. Medical Insurance is provided with this position contributing a percentage of cost not to exceed the Department of Labor ACA recommended affordability threshold (currently 8.39% of annual income) and the organization contributing the rest. Dental and Vision Insurances are optional with employee paying all costs.

The Grail offers 10 paid holidays (5 set and 5 floating) each year. This position adds vacation PTO at the rate of 3.08 hours per pay period (which equals 10 days in years 1-3) and sick PTO at the rate of .31 hours per pay period (which equals 8 days in years 1-3).

The Grail is an equal opportunity employer and considers all qualified applicants without regard to race, color, religion, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, age, disability, or veteran status. We are committed to providing a workplace that is inclusive and values diversity, and we encourage candidates from all backgrounds to apply.

Cincinnati Nature Center

Call for sculpture artists!

Posted:
Mar 13, 2024
Project Description 
The Forest Portals project invites local artists to craft four unique sculptural gateways that welcome people of our region to the forests of Rowe Woods. Set among our old growth forest, these portals will provide an enchanting introduction to our trail system. The gateways will be unveiled during our vibrant fall hiking season, allowing visitors to fully immerse themselves in the intersection of art and nature. The integration of art in nature can provide a profound impact that not only inspires but fosters a deeper 
connection to our natural world.

While our trails are noted by trail markers, they are otherwise undecorated. The forest portals will breathe new life into these otherwise ordinary trailheads. Once installed, the forest portals will welcome nature lovers to the art world and art lovers to the natural world. As visitors traverse the trails, the forest portals will inspire a sense of wonder, fostering a deeper connection to the nature and heritage embedded in our old growth forest. 

We will unveil the forest portals during the busy fall hiking season. This strategic unveiling will enhance visitor experience during peak hiking and optimize resources to provide more access to this art experience. Our youth, hike-based education programs utilize our hiking trails daily to educate and inspire our region's youth, many of whom receive a subsidy for student fees and transportation. The portals will no doubt be one of the highlights of our hike-based education programs. The Nature Center has a robust Marketing department that will leverage web, digital, and social media content to promote and showcase the forest portals project, our community, and local artists. Furthermore, the forest portals can be highlighted during our month-long winter walking event, Light in the Forest, if appropriate and agreed upon by all parties. We will light up each forest portal that is on the route, which will offer a fun and new way to experience the sculptures and give each artist even broader exposure. 

The forest portals project is part of the Cincinnati Nature Center Earth Expressions Program, funded in part by ArtsWave and the National Endowment for the Arts. 

Selection Process 
One or two artists will be selected through an RFP process and committee. Artists can propose 2 or 4 installments (see chart below). When choosing an artist, the committee will consider:
- The proposed sculpture(s) is based on a nature theme related to the Cincinnati region 
- The proposed sculpture(s) can withstand wind and rain/snow
- Artist experience creating installations in an outdoor setting
- Artist experience working with the public and ability to share and promote their work

The Taft’s Sallie Robinson Wadsworth Director of Curatorial Affairs will act as the intern’s supervisor and mentor, directing the intern’s activities and providing overall counsel on their professional development. Like AAMD, the Taft’s goal is to foster a future art museum profession that is more inclusive, creative, and representative.
The Taft and AAMD recognize that the financial resources available to some students may limit access to career development. For that reason, this internship is paid to make it more equitable. 
Enjoy this rare internship opportunity in one of the finest small art museums in the United States.
   
HOW TO APPLY:
Please submit a cover letter, resume, three references, and a writing sample through our online portal at taftmuseum.org/Careers. Our team will review your information, and we will get back to you with the next steps. If you have questions, please email Human Resources at HRAdm@taftmuseum.org. No phone calls, please.

AAMD INTERNSHIP GUIDELINES:
- Interns must be in their undergraduate sophomore, junior, or senior year. 
- Interns must identify with an underrepresented background in the art museum field.
- Interns must complete 420 hours of work by the end of the 2024 calendar year. Interns may work full-time (35 hours per week) or part-time (15-20 hours per week), Monday-Friday. *Items in parathesis are Taft requirements.
- A member of the institution's senior leadership team, in this case the Taft’s Sallie Robinson Wadsworth’s Director of Curatorial Affairs, must serve as the intern’s point of contact and mentor. Mentors are strongly encouraged to work closely with their intern and to establish a weekly meeting to ensure opportunity for conversation, feedback, direction, and questions.
- Each intern must be assigned to work on a defined project, in addition to other departmental activities, so that they will see a culmination of their work at the end of the internship. 
- Each intern may attend a professional development opportunity of his/her/their choice. Options for professional gatherings can include but are not limited to the American Alliance of Museums (AAM), the Association of African American Museums (AAAM), and the Association of Academic Museums and Galleries (AAMG) conferences. Other professional development opportunities will be considered with prior notice. 
- Each institution will be required to submit a written report at the end of the internship assessing the program, the goals, and the outcomes as well as offering a performance review of the intern. 
- The intern will also be required to submit a written report summarizing the activities and results of the internship.

THE WORK: 

The AAMD intern will be a member of the Taft’s Curatorial and Collections department and will join the team organizing the major traveling exhibition on the nineteenth-century African American painter Robert S. Duncanson, scheduled to open at the Taft in October 2027. A centerpiece of the Taft’s important painting collection is the set of eight landscape murals Duncanson painted for then resident Nicholas Longworth between 1850 and 1852, which are the only such murals painted by the artist and one of the most significant sets of pre-Civil War domestic murals in the United States. Consequently, the institution has a special interest in Duncanson; his legacy is embedded within the Taft’s exhibitions and programs such as the Duncanson Artist-in-Residence, which commemorates its 40th anniversary in 2026. This exhibition the following year will reassess the place of this important artist in nineteenth-century American history, commemorating the 175th anniversary of his murals’ completion.

The AAMD intern will provide key research support for the Duncanson show, focusing on finding and organizing written sources on the artist dating from his rise to fame in the mid-nineteenth century to the present day. The many online databases of digitized publications, such as newspapers.com, that did not exist when the last major show on the artist was done in 1995–1996, will enable the intern to locate primary sources that researchers have not found before. In addition, the intern will search the undigitized resources available in Cincinnati institutions such as the Cincinnati and Hamilton County Public Library, Cincinnati History Library and Archives at the Cincinnati Museum Center, and Cincinnati Art Museum. The body of research built by the intern will not only be a crucial resource for the team working on the exhibition, it will also be useful at the Taft after the show closes, as the museum continues to be a center for Duncanson scholarship in the years to come.

CORE REPONSIBILITIES:   
- Provides key research support for the Robert S. Duncanson exhibition.
- Finds and organizes written sources on the artist dating from his rise to fame in the mid-nineteenth century to the present day, accessing both digitized and undigitized sources available in the Cincinnati area. 
- Works collaboratively with the Curatorial & Collections Team.
- Participates with the Director of Curatorial Affairs in regular one-on- one meetings to check progress, seek feedback, answer questions, and review accessed resources to ensure a full survey is being conducted.
- Conducts a final presentation of the research to the Duncanson exhibition team, communicating any remaining questions through this debriefing and a written report detailing which resources have been surveyed and which remain to be investigated.
- Assists with administrative tasks as needed, and performs other duties as assigned.  

REQUIRED MINIMUM EDUCATION AND EXPERIENCE:    
- Must be eligible for and receive permission through their college or university for an internship in Curatorial & Collections. 
- Must be enrolled as a half-time (minimum) or full-time student in an accredited college or university, studying art history or a related field.
- Must identify with an underrepresented background in the art museum field.
- Must be available to work 15-35 hours per week. Scheduling flexibility is available within 9am-5pm shifts Mondays-Fridays. 
- Must speak English and be an effective verbal and written communicator. 
- Capacity to work in a fast-paced, multitasked environment, deal with changing priorities, and work well under pressure.
- Able to pass a background check, including criminal records check and credit check.
- Must be authorized to work in the United States
- Must provide own transportation.

DESIRED QUALIFICATIONS:
- Able to work independently and as part of a team.
- Must be organized, meticulous, and possess exceptional research and writing skills. 
- Proficient knowledge of Microsoft Outlook and Office Suite (Word, PowerPoint, Excel, etc.) and the ability to learn new software and handling of pre-digital formats such as microfiche and microfilm is required. Familiarity with online platforms such as Zoom, Vimeo, and Microsoft Teams.
