Gallery Job/Volunteer/Internship Opportunities

Digital Marketing Associate

Accepting applications until Friday, May 7 2021

VisArts is seeking a dynamic, resourceful, and proactive professional with 1-2 years’ experience in digital and social media marketing, community engagement, and design (preferably at an agency or nonprofit) to join our team as Digital Marketing Associate.

We’re a small, nonprofit arts center with contemporary art galleries; studio artists, fellows, and residents; a supported studio program for artists with disabilities; art classes; art camps; and community outreach programs. We’re a caring, creative community and our mission is to transform individuals and communities through the visual arts.

This new, primarily onsite position reports to the Director of Marketing and Communications. It’s a full-time, early career role for someone who really gets – and loves – marketing and outreach and is excited to help us grow.

We’re actively recruiting applicants from all backgrounds so that our staff more closely matches the diversity of our community. We want to hire the best person for the job – including people who challenge the status quo – and we believe a diverse team creates a better experience for our community, a better place to work, and a better world to live in! We strongly encourage BIPOC, AAPI, and/or LGBTQ+ applicants.

Please send a cover letter (required) and resume to esternlukin@visartscenter.org by Friday, May 7. We may request writing, social media, and design samples.
