The Five Oaks Museums (formerly Washington County Museum) is now accepting proposals for two Guest Curator opportunities:
- The 2020 Summer Exhibit Guest Curatorship focused on fine art
- 2020-21 School-year Exhibit Guest Curatorship focused on cultural and historical content
Do you want to share your unique cultural perspectives and help shape the defining stories of our region?
The Guest Curator program at the museum de-centers the authoritative voice of major exhibits, creating a platform for culturally embedded storytelling. Guest Curators have creative control over the design, content, and texts of a major exhibit filling the museum’s 1,200 square foot exhibit hall. Staff will support the Guest Curators in utilizing the museum’s cultural resources, developing curriculum, logistics and project management as needed.
Info Session: Tuesday, January 14th from 1-3pm
Guest Curators receive a fixed stipend as compensation for the entire project. Stipends are paid 50% at the beginning of the work period and 50% at completion. Recipients must submit a W9.
Summer Exhibit: $1,000 / School-year Exhibit: $3,000
Application Period Closes: Monday, February 3rd at 5pm
