Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park & Museum

Executive Director

Posted:
Oct 9, 2018
Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park & Museum seeks a dynamic and experienced Executive Director to drive its mission of engaging diverse audiences in the critically important dialogue between art and nature. The Executive Director must advance the Park’s position as a leading cultural institution within the tri-state region and its reputation nationally among outdoor sculpture parks. This will include vision building for the organization’s art collection, exhibitions, educational programs and collaborative partnerships. The Executive Director will be the lead fundraiser responsible for cultivating donor relationships, securing financial grants and seeking other revenue streams to strengthen its financial position for future investments and long-term sustainability.

Background
Pyramid Hill Sculpture Park & Museum is a unique institution comprising three extraordinary resources: its outdoor sculpture, its Ancient Sculpture Museum, and its forested Ohio valley landscape. Established in 1998 as a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, the Park’s mission is to bring people to art in nature. Since its founding 20 years ago, Pyramid Hill has grown into a picturesque venue of over 300 acres and more than 60 outdoor sculptures. The Park offers visitors the ability to experience its monumental outdoor sculpture collection in an inspiring landscape of rolling hills, meadows, lakes, and hiking trails. The Ancient Sculpture Museum, featuring Greek, Roman, Etruscan, Syrian, and Egyptian objects dating to 1550 B.C., provides visitors with an opportunity to examine three-dimensional art from its origins to the most contemporary examples. In addition to ancient sculpture, the Museum exhibits contemporary work by local, regional, and national artists. Through the generosity of founder Harry Wilks, who passed away in 2014, the Park has become a draw for visitors and residents alike. For more information about Pyramid Hill, visit pyramidhill.org.

Mission & Strategic Plan
Pyramid Hill inspires and educates its diverse visitors in a world-renowned setting of art and nature. With its landscape and collection as catalyst for dialog, collaboration and contemplation, Pyramid Hill presents a broad variety of programs for audiences of all ages including tours, lectures, concerts, summer camps, and an annual holiday lights installation. The Pyramid Hill Board has articulated the following strategic goals to support the Park’s continued growth and success:
