Director, Cape Ann Museum, Gloucester, MA

There are few places that have played a role as significant as Cape Ann in the history of American art. Artists that have spent time here include Fitz Henry Lane, Winslow Homer, Marsden Hartley, Edward Hopper, John Sloan, Stuart Davis, Milton Avery, Mark Rothko, and more. Gloucester was the 4th largest fishing port in the world. As a result, it was a hotbed for technology advancement and innovation related to the fishery and food packaging industries. Cape Ann's quarries supplied granite to the entire eastern seaboard.

The Cape Ann Museum tells the story of Cape Ann and its role in American art and industry. The organization has a dedicated staff, committed volunteers, an actively engaged Board of Trustees, and a broad base of financial and community support. The next Director of the Cape Ann Museum will leverage these assets to guide the organization through a period of transformative growth.

The next Director will oversee the opening of a world-class collection and curatorial facility with new gallery and green space, a significant capital campaign, enhancements to its core facilities, nationally significant exhibitions, and increased community programming.

This is all leading up to the 150th Anniversary of the Museum in 2023 which will coincide with the 400th anniversary of Gloucester. This is an incredible opportunity for the right individual as the Cape Ann Museum is poised to receive new levels of recognition. This search is being led by Naree Viner and Stephen Milbauer of Koya Leadership Partners.
