About The Newark Museum of Art:

We welcome everyone with inclusive experiences that spark curiosity and foster community.

We acknowledge the traditional homelands of the Lenape, also known as the Delaware, upon which The Newark Museum of Art resides.

Founded in 1909 and located in New Jersey, The Newark Museum of Art (NMOA) is the state’s largest museum and ranks twelfth nationally in terms of collection size. Global and diasporic, the collection includes more than 100,000 artworks, as well as significant holdings of science and natural history. From the classical world to the art of today, the NMOA boasts exceptional examples and depth in the Arts of Global Africa, Arts of Global Asia, Arts of the Americas, including Native American art, Arts of the Ancient Mediterranean, and Decorative Arts. The American collection features works by major artists such as John Singer Sargent, Childe Hassam, Mary Cassatt, Sam Gilliam, Georgia O’Keeffe, Carmen Herrera, Jeffrey Gibson, and Mickalene Thomas.

The NMOA’s visitor- and community-centric approach responds to the evolving needs and interests of the diverse audiences it serves by offering exhibitions, programming, a research library, paid internships, and local and global partnerships. A four-acre campus comprises the 1885 Ballantine House, a National Historic Landmark; the Alice Ransom Dreyfuss Memorial Garden; and Horizon Plaza. Under the leadership of Director/CEO Linda C. Harrison, the NMOA has launched an era of transformation to create an engaged citizenry by reimagining the role of the art museum for the 21st century.

The Newark Museum of Art is an Equal Opportunity Employer. In addition, we aspire to make the Museum and our environment – staff, audiences, artists, programs, and exhibitions – reflective of the diversity of the city of Newark and to capture the spirit of access, inclusion, and equity in all we do. We strongly encourage and welcome applicants from our BIPOC, disabled, and LGBTQIA+ communities as they must be centered in the work we do.
