I’m no art expert, which is probably why most of the artists whose work I am familiar with are both European and dead. My knowledge of contemporary American art is pretty limited. Maybe that would change if I visited the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York, NY, as it’s the “preeminent institution devoted to the art of the United States.” My awesome sister (who is a painter now pursuing a career in medicine) gave me the heads up on the fact that they’re hiring. The Whitney Museum of American Art was founded in 1930 after sculptor Gertrude Vanderbilt Whitney’s offer to the The Metropolitan Museum of Art of a collection of more than 500 works was rejected. Much like taking her ball and going home, she took her art and started a new museum.

The Whitney

In its 80 years since opening, the Whitney Museum of American Art has become “the preeminent institution devoted to the art of the United States” as it “presents the full range of twentieth-century and contemporary American art, with a special focus on works by living artists.” You can find the full history here. If you’d like to get a feel for what kind of art they have at The Whitney, you have to look no further than their current exhibitions–or better yet, you can actually visit the museum if you’re in NYC. If contemporary American art speaks to you, then you have to check out jobs at the Whitney Museum of American Art. They have a few positions open right now, and the best fits for new or recent grads are Development Records Assistant, Accounts Payable Clerk, and Part-Time Member Services Assistant.
