An understanding of partnerships, events, PR and content is useful as well.

  • Must have experience working in a fast-paced, goal-oriented environment. 

  • Must be excited to work in a young company to build something meaningful and different than the status quo.

  • A personal interest in art is important, but experience in marketing art is not a requirement. We’re really looking for someone who can apply consumer digital best practices to the arts landscape.
