Job Title: Chief Engineer

The Museum of Modern Art, New York 

MoMA PS1, one of the oldest and largest nonprofit contemporary art institutions in the United States, was founded in 1971 by Alanna Heiss as the Institute for Art and Urban Resources Inc., an organization devoted to organizing exhibitions in underutilized and abandoned spaces across New York City. In 1976, it opened the first major exhibition in its permanent location in Long Island City, Queens, with the seminal Rooms exhibition. An invitation for artists to transform the building’s unique spaces, Rooms established the MoMA PS1 tradition of transforming the building’s spaces into site-specific art that continues today with long-term installations by James Turrell, William Kentridge, Pipilotti Rist, Lawrence Weiner, and others.

For the next 20 years, the building was used as studio, performance, and exhibition space, in support of artists from around the world. After a building-wide renovation, P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center (now MoMA PS1) reopened in 1997, confirming its position as the leading contemporary art center in New York. True to the building’s history and form, the renovation preserved much of the original architecture, as well as most of its unique classroom-sized galleries.

In 2000, P.S.1 Contemporary Art Center became an affiliate of The Museum of Modern Art to extend the reach of both institutions, and combine MoMA PS1’s contemporary mission with MoMA’s strength as one of the greatest collecting museums of modern art. A true artistic laboratory, MoMA PS1 aspires to maintain its diverse and innovative activities to continue to bring contemporary art to international audiences.

Job Title: HVAC Technician

Chrysler Museum of Art, Norfolk, Virginia 

The history of the Chrysler Museum includes stories of 19th century feminist visionaries and a mid-20th century penny drive by schoolchildren to buy a single Renoir that was about the size of a paperback book. The exhibition history ranges from taxidermy displays and Confederate relics to paintings that had price tags attached. Clearly, everything moved to a new level when Walter Chrysler, Jr. came to town. The son of the car company founder moved his fledgling museum from a cramped Massachusetts church to Norfolk in 1971. The city promised support, space and commitment, and 10,000 works of art later, the Norfolk Museum of Arts and Sciences was the Chrysler Museum of Art.

The story of Chrysler's gift transcends just the number of works. It's what he collected that remains breathtaking to this day. A legendary art critic with The New York Times, a man who'd had issues with the mercurial Chrysler in the past, had a chance to see the collection in its new home a few years after Chrysler's death. And he called our namesake the most underrated American collector of his era.

Job Title: Project Manager

Museum/Organization: Woodruff Arts Center  Atlanta, Georgia

The Woodruff Arts Center opened in 1968 as the Memorial Arts Center. This project was an authentic milestone in Atlanta history, simultaneously remembering arts patrons who died in the 1962 Orly plane crash and continuing their legacy by assuring a central place for the arts in Atlanta’s future. Visionary leaders made it happen—men and women who realized what the arts could do for the community. Their commitment lives on in the contributions of today’s business and civic leaders who step forward as volunteers to guide The Woodruff. Across nearly five decades, The Woodruff Arts Center has brought great art of all eras and cultures to Atlanta. Drawing from the regional and cultural influences around us, The Woodruff has given fresh and lively art back to the community and world, offering a key role in making Atlanta a global center for education, tourism and inspiration.
