The Lunder Institute for American Art (Lunder Institute) was founded in 2017 as part of the Colby College Museum of Art to create a unique forum for scholarship, artistic practice, dialogue, and mentorship among visiting scholars and artists, faculty and students, and local and global communities. In doing so, it seeks to advance Colby College’s educational purpose, which prioritizes learning and growth within a civically engaged, interdisciplinary, and global context. Informed by place, community, and collaboration, the Lunder Institute’s primary mission is to expand who shapes American art and alters its contours while demonstrating the value of art as a public good.
Joining the Lunder Institute at a critical time in its evolution, the new Director will have the opportunity to shape its vision and strategy, including its program, practices, and structure. This individual will build on the strong foundations established in its first four years while proactively envisioning its future. The Director will oversee the staff, resources, and programs of this unique local, national, and international museum-based initiative at the intersection of research and artistic production.
