Contemporary Arts Center

Project Intern

Posted:
Nov 16, 2018
The Contemporary Arts Center (CAC) is seeking a project-specific Intern to work on a variety of operations in connection with the performance All The Sex I’ve Ever Had by Toronto-based performing arts company Mammalian Diving Reflex (MDR).

Period
January 7 – April 15, 2019

About All The Sex I’ve Ever Had and Mammalian Diving Reflex
All the Sex I’ve Ever Had is a performance about, and starring, people over the age of 65 and features everything they can remember and care to share about their romantic and sexual lives. A group of six older adults from the local community discuss the evolution of love and sexuality from the perspective of life’s later years.

All the Sex I’ve Ever Had offers the audience the experiences of a generation. Older adults courageously open up their personal lives and experiences to fellow participants and strangers, divulging stories of first crushes, turbulent affairs, unexpected pregnancies and deaths of loved ones as they go year-by-year through their entire lives. The participants chat with the audience, toast to important milestones and dance on-stage.

All the Sex I’ve Ever Had helps set aside pre-conceived social expectations so that we are able to experience a new social generosity. In our youth-obsessed culture, All the Sex I’ve Ever Had re-establishes a community of wise elders to whom we can turn for advice gleaned from their vast wealth of life expertise. The performance offers an opportunity to acknowledge that our elders have a lot to teach us, a lot to share, and that aging can yield a way of being in the world that is open, generous and fearless. It offers younger audiences an understanding of intimacy in later years, as well as support to older adults who can learn from, or find common ground in the experiences of their peers – experiences that are under-represented, and typically relegated to the privacy of the bedroom.

Mammalian Diving Reflex’s work occurs in public, collaborates with non-artists, and creates unusual social situations that bring people together from different socio-economic, geographic, cultural, and racial backgrounds who wouldn’t normally have the opportunity or reason to spend time together. They engage audience members as active participants and collaborators in all of their work. They have made strangers slow dance with each other; eat meals together; interview one other on stage in front of hundreds of other audience members; had children give adults haircuts; and have held all night dance parties DJed by 10-year-olds.

All the Sex I’ve Ever Had is a performance with between 5-10 adults over the age of 65 as collaborative performers. It is recommended for audiences over 14 years of age.

Job Requirements
Primary Responsibilities
The Project Intern will be responsible for assisting the CAC Performing Arts Director, the performance’s Local Coordinator, and MDR team in all aspects, including sourcing materials and props in advance of the performances, serving as a key liaison between all parties, stocking and restocking food for workshops and performances, resetting the stage, etc.

Key functions
- Ability to work occasional evenings and weekends
- Excellent verbal, written, and interpersonal communication skills
- Ability to relate to diverse age and demographic backgrounds
- Must be creative, flexible, responsible, and be able to balance a variety of activities
- Possess a high level of professional maturity, judgment, decisiveness, and the capacity to deal with a wide range of relationships and situations
- Computer literate and working knowledge of Microsoft Office Suite and Google Drive Suite
- Demonstrate diplomacy, tact, and a professional demeanor
- Strong organizational, analytical, and prioritization skills
- Perform other duties as assigned

A working driver’s license and access to a vehicle are highly preferred.

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:
