Job Description: The Curator oversees the development of exhibitions, programming, publications and the collection of the Hilliard University Art Museum. This position reports to the Director and serves as a strong administrative and creative partner. The Curator engages the campus community, the local creative community of Acadiana and the larger regional and national art communities in the creation of a program that reinforces the museum’s roles as an educational resource for the university, a center for community engagement and a cultural hub in the southeast region.
The Paul and Lulu Hilliard University Art Museum (HUAM) is located at the edge of the University of Louisiana (UL) campus in Lafayette, Louisiana. The museum is comprised of two buildings, the original 1967 A. Hays Town plantation-style house (3,100 sq. ft.) and the newer state-of-the-art Hilliard Museum with three exhibition galleries (11,000 sq. ft. of exhibition space) and a gift shop featuring crafts by local artists. The museum’s collection features approximately 2,000 objects including European and American painting, Japanese prints, folk art and a collection of Egyptian art. The museum works collaboratively with the university’s nine colleges – including the College of Arts - as well as with local, national and international partners to present exhibitions and programs on the art of our time. With a student population of approximately 18,000 and the culturally-rich community of Acadiana around us, we celebrate the creative spirit that infuses every aspect of life here from food and drink to music, art and dance.
