Reports to: Director
Native American Art at Shelburne Museum
Shelburne Museum has recently become steward of a nationally important collection of Indigenous art and material culture. The collection represents the most significant addition, in content, size, and importance, to Shelburne Museum since Electra Havemeyer Webb founded the institution in 1947. Comprising over 250 objects from the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, this historically important assembly joins a collection of 300 baskets, articles of clothing, tools, and domestic items in the care of the Museum since the late 1950s. When combined, the collections present a rare opportunity to define new models of governance, stewardship, and interpretation for Indigenous creative culture to be presented in new building planned for this purpose.
The Project Manager will work closely and collaboratively with Native American partners, Museum senior staff, a national advisory committee, as well as consultants, vendors, and stakeholders to ensure that all aspects of the building project move forward in a timely, organized, and concerted manner, ensuring the success of this long-term project.
Reporting to the Director of Shelburne Museum, the Director of Finance manages an annual operating budget of approximately $7 million and directly oversees the museum’s financial and risk management operations of the Museum, to include the development of a financial and operational strategy, metrics tied to that strategy, and the ongoing development and monitoring of control systems designed to preserve company assets and report accurate financial results.
