Operations Manager

Oct 11, 2017
High Level Managerial/Administrative Functions for Non-Profit Arts Organization

POSITION OPEN IMMEDIATELY

Manifest seeks a dynamic, highly organized, detail-oriented, and passionate person to fill the multifunctional position of Operations Manager. At Manifest the Operations Manager works directly with the Executive Director, as well as Exhibition Coordinator, Drawing Center Coordinator, Operations Assistant, and the Board of Directors. The position requires a self-starter who can work independently with a big picture view of prioritizing tasks and non-profit organizational needs. This is a full-time high-level administrative and managerial position. Currently the position is supported by one part-time assistant, and itself serves as the pivot for a very tight-knit high-performing team of five paid staff.

The Operations Manager is a hub of activity, communications, and action at Manifest, overseeing the organization’s mission-centered functions on both an internal and public level. Primary responsibilities include non-profit finance management and bookkeeping, personnel management, grant writing (coordination, reporting and completion), volunteer recruitment, event setup and planning, and ensuring the efficient operation of four program areas: public exhibitions, the Manifest Press (annual publications), Drawing Center operations, and a unique 12-month artist residency program in coordination with the Executive Director. Additional aspects of this role include some project management and support, especially related to exhibitions and publications. Training or equivalent experience in office management, people management, leadership, and bookkeeping is a must. The ideal candidate will bring existing knowledge and skill while also being an eager learner with a very positive attitude, able to communicate and relay information, feedback and direction clearly from Executive Director to staff, and possess the authority to engage directly with staff resulting in motivation and upward growth. Candidates must be highly organized, detail-oriented, forward thinkers who can optimize time management and task management of the individual position while prioritizing and juggling organization-wide responsibilities and needs. Candidates must understand and support the mission of the organization, and should have at the very least a basic interest in the visual arts and an investment in their place in society. It is preferable that applicants have experience in proof reading, text editing, grant writing and reporting, non-profit finance, donor relations and a familiarity with non-profit operations.

Candidates must be flexible to accommodate occasional special event needs and gallery staffing needs. The position offers the chance to interact with visual artists from all over the world, as well as a vibrant local community, and to be a central part of the creative energy at Manifest. The opportunity to help shape Manifest as it prepares its long-range plan, and to influence operations and security for the coming years is a unique benefit.

Department: Curatorial

Benefits: Benefits include health care plan, dental, 401k plan with employer contribution, free parking, vacation, holidays, and sick time. Other benefits: Museum membership and other special discounts.

Position Overview
The Assistant Curator will be a member of the curatorial department at the Taft Museum of Art (TMA). The Museum seeks a highly effective and dynamic person to help the Taft deliver its mission of providing meaningful experiences by connecting people with great art in a historic setting. The Assistant Curator will research, interpret, and care for the permanent collection; coordinate, install, interpret, and organize special exhibitions, and handle a great variety of other responsibilities. This role requires a commitment not only to scholarship and high professional standards but also to public engagement and accessibility. The TMA is looking for a person who is curious, perceptive, collaborative, and a critical thinker to join a cohesive staff and work positively with a broad range of internal and external partners. 
The Taft Museum of Art, which opened in 1932, is one of the finest small art museums in the United States. A founder-based museum like the Frick Collection and the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, the Taft presents the collections of Charles and Anna Taft, noted Gilded Age collectors. The holdings consist of European old master and 19th-century paintings; 19th-century American paintings and sculpture; European decorative arts, with particular strength in French Renaissance enamels, Italian maiolica, and watches; and American Federal-period furniture. Works from the small, exquisite collection are lent selectively to leading international museums. The facility comprises a historic house (built c. 1820) that is on the National Historic Register and a modern wing completed in 2004. Located in downtown Cincinnati, the Museum is part of a resurgent downtown culture.
Written up recently in the New York Times’s “36 Hours,” Cincinnati was described as “experiencing a boom, especially in the Over-the-Rhine district where culture and breweries thrive.” http://www.nytimes.com/2009/07/19/travel/19hour.html?mcubz=0 The article noted the vigorous residential development of a large area of historic downtown row houses in a vibrant commercial, dining, and theater district. Less well known is the fact that the city has a thriving cultural landscape; it is now one of the top eleven cities in America for attendance at cultural events, along with New York, Boston, Chicago, Philadelphia, Los Angeles, and San Francisco, among others.

Manifest Creative Research Gallery and Drawing Center is seeking a skillful, organized, and energetic person to fill the part-time position of Operations Assistant.

The ideal candidate for this entry level position will play an important supporting role in the operations of this internationally recognized and locally vital fourteen year old non-profit arts organization.

The Operations Assistant will work directly with the Operations Manager in support of many and various routine tasks related to all areas of the organization’s operation. Such tasks can include but will not be limited to: facility maintenance (including public, office, and other support areas), mailing and promotional distribution, technical assistance on exhibition installations, event prep, hosting, and cleanup, gallery sitting if needed, publication support including inventory work and maintenance, and general supportive work where an extra set of eyes, hands, and mind are often needed.

While oversight and work assignments for this position will rest with the Operations Manager the position may also work with various program lead staff from time to time, including the Executive Director, Exhibition Coordinator and possibly the Drawing Center Coordinator, in support of key or prioritized work.

It is essential that the Assistant is also able to work independently as needed. The schedule for this position is somewhat flexible but should be consistent as coordinated by the Operations Manager. The Assistant must also understand that due to the nature of tasks and activities involved, the work schedule of the position will need to adapt from time to time to fit occasional special events, serving the specific needs of the organization.

The Operations Assistant must understand and support the mission of Manifest, and is preferred to have an interest in, commitment to, and familiarity with visual arts. It is preferred that applicants hold a degree in fine art, design, or art history with complimentary experience considered a plus. Some familiarity with non-profit, gallery/ museum, or practical business operations would be beneficial.

This position offers the opportunity to become intimately familiar with the workings of a 13 year old well established small nonprofit and gain new skills, experience, and knowledge. The position also provides the chance to play a part of the vibrant energy at Manifest by interacting with Manifest’s existing culture, and to support Manifest’s lead staff in maintaining and improving upon the quality work the organization is known for.

National Underground Railroad Freedom Center

President and Chief Operating Officer

Posted:
Aug 22, 2017
Organization
The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center (Freedom Center) opened in 2004 on the banks of the Ohio River in Cincinnati and stands as one of the nation’s most inspiring modern monuments to freedom. The impressive 158,000-square-foot structure is located in the heart of downtown and features three pavilions that celebrate courage, cooperation, and perseverance. The location highlights Cincinnati’s significant role in the history of the Underground Railroad. Drawing more than 120,000 visitors per year, the mission of the Freedom Center is to reveal stories of freedom’s heroes, from the era of the Underground Railroad to contemporary times, challenging and inspiring everyone to take courageous steps for freedom today.

The Freedom Center connects the lessons of the Underground Railroad with modern issues of freedom, especially through two innovative initiatives. The Freedom Center was the first American museum to develop a permanent exhibition on modern day slavery, “Invisible.”  The staff also manages the End Slavery Now website, which attracts approximately 70,000 visits per month from around the world. A second initiative on implicit bias includes an in-house laboratory, a traveling exhibit, and corporate training programs. This effort was developed in collaboration with Dr. Mahzarin Benaji of Harvard University. Both initiatives extend the impact of the Freedom Center to national and international audiences. Through exhibits, artifacts, films, hands-on activities, and interactive galleries, the Freedom Center creates a compelling arena for dialogue and invites visitors to contemplate the meaning of freedom in their own lives.

The Freedom Center hosts more than 40,000 students annually and offers powerful educational experiences, including youth-centered tours, docent programs, think tanks, and panel discussions. Educator support programs are available to help teachers bring the Freedom Center’s message to life in the classroom. The International Freedom Conductor Award, which recognizes the contributions of contemporary individuals who reflect the spirit and courageous actions of conductors on the historic Underground Railroad, and the Open Your Mind learning lab, which explores implicit bias, are two of the many groundbreaking programs created at the Freedom Center, bringing national and international attention to the organization. Through its world-class cultural and educational offerings, the organization has built partnerships with key industry leaders, including Google, GE, Toyota, and Major League Baseball. The Freedom Center is an affiliate of the Smithsonian Institutions and is accredited by the American Alliance of Museums.

A merger with Cincinnati Museum Center (CMC) was finalized in 2012 with the goal to leverage the full potential of both organizations. Each retains its own 501(c)(3) status and is responsible for its own development operation. CMC is the sole member of the National Underground Railroad Freedom Center with ultimate fiduciary responsibility led by the CMC Board of Trustees. Together, the organizations have created a long-term sustainability plan that includes refreshment of Freedom Center exhibitions, utilization of a shared services agreement, and a lease of the café space to an outside vendor for a high-traffic restaurant to open beyond museum hours in late 2018.

The Freedom Center has a staff of 21 full-time and six part-time employees and is governed by a 31-member board of directors led by Chair Reverend Damon Lynch, Jr. Annual revenues in fiscal year 2016 were $5 million, with $1.3 million in earned revenue and $3.8 million in contributed revenue. The endowment is approximately $8.3 million.

Community
Known as the Queen City, Cincinnati was the first major city founded after the American Revolution and is widely thought of as the first purely American city. Located at the mid-point of the Ohio River, Cincinnati served as the gateway between the North and the South and as a magnet for tens of thousands of German and Irish immigrants after 1830. That influx fueled Cincinnati’s growth, making it the New Nation’s first boom town and its fastest growing and sixth-largest city by 1850. In the decades after the Civil War, growth leveled and city leaders turned their attention to developing the artistic and cultural infrastructure of the city. The legacy of those efforts is a region rich in music, theater, and cultural institutions that rival much larger cities.

Today, metropolitan Cincinnati is home to 2.2 million residents who live in 15 counties in southwest Ohio, northern Kentucky, and southeast Indiana. Like many other mid-sized cities, in the last 15 years the center city has experienced a revival that has restored downtown living. The Banks development has transformed the historic riverfront. Stadiums for MLB Cincinnati Reds and NFL Cincinnati Bengals bracket The Banks while the Freedom Center anchors the center between, along with nearly 1,000 new apartments, restaurants, and a hotel. A new GE Global Operations Center for nearly 1,800 employees is immediately across the street from the Freedom Center. The Central Riverfront Park serves as the expansive front lawn of the Freedom Center. Taken together, The Banks has become one of the activity magnets in the region.

With a wide variety of neighborhoods and small distinctive communities, the region has a remarkably reasonable cost of living, especially in terms of real estate costs. The residential character of the region is enhanced by an extensive park system for recreation and greenspaces of Cincinnati and Hamilton County. The economy is anchored by nine Fortune 500 company headquarters, including Procter & Gamble, Kroger, and Macy’s. In recent years, the region has also invested in building an entrepreneurial culture. Especially important are biotech efforts, centered at the Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, which now employs more than 14,000 people and is consistently ranked as the third best children’s hospital in the nation. Included in this arena is the Hillman Accelerator, serving minority-led tech companies, located on the fourth floor of the Freedom Center.

Volunteer Teaching Artist Mentorship

Posted:
Aug 22, 2017
Become a mentor at V+V! The way the program works is that you are paired with one of the five V+V artists that have been nominated to go through the Teaching Artist Program, and you work with that artist over the course of the program as their direct mentor. The purpose of the program is to get the artist ready for teaching opportunities in schools and community centers by developing lesson plans, writing artist statements, working side by side on artwork, practicing basic public speaking skills, and eventually completing student teaching in an assigned school.

The classes would meet from 10a-12p on the following Wednesdays, and there would be a graduation ceremony on May 17th:

- Oct 18, 25
- Nov 1, 8, 15, 29
- Dec 6, 13, 20
- Jan 10, 17, 24, 31
- Feb 7, 14, 21, 28
- March 7, 14, 21, 28
- April 11, 18
- May 2

We want this to be a stress free and rewarding experience for our mentors as we know that it is asking a lot of you and your time. Not only is the environment really fun and casual, but the classes will be held in our brand new education space in Oakley! The mentorship is often extremely formative and inspiring to your own artistic process, and is a great way to keep your creative mind moving throughout the week. A lot of time will be spent simply working on artwork together, drinking coffee and fostering relationships with all of the artists, other mentors and us edu staffers! We also usually take at least one field trip.

Due to the fact that all of our Teaching Artists are state funded, there are a few basic logistical requirements that need to be completed before the student teaching portion of the program, which is towards the end of the 25 weeks. The main elements are a background check, 1st Aid/CPR certification, an 8 hour online training regarding working with people with disabilities, and a valid driver's license. V+V pays for all of these items, certifications, etc, and again, they don't all need to be completed come October 18th, just before you would be driving an artist to and from a teaching engagement.

Please contact Casey Gries at cgries@visionariesandvoices.com to volunteer or with any questions you may have!
