The External Affairs Manager/Senior Manager/Director (title commensurate with experience) will work closely with the Executive Director, staff, and the Board to drive ArtBridge’s continued growth as a leading public art nonprofit in New York City, dedicated to transforming the city’s 300+ miles of construction fencing. This position coordinates development, public relations, and marketing efforts, aiming to increase funding from sponsors and donors.
ArtBridge’s office is in Chelsea, NYC, with its work almost exclusively within the 5 boroughs. Pandemic-permitting, work will be a combination of remote and in-office. Working with a dynamic small staff in an open office environment, the applicant must be both a self-starter and a willing collaborator. This position is an exciting opportunity to be an external ambassador for a rapidly growing nonprofit, whose work is highly prominent. You will collaborate with a wide range of stakeholders – from donors and Board members, to government agencies, real estate developers, and corporate sponsors – in order to increase the ArtBridge’s funding and presence within the public art landscape.
Job functions include:
Salary: $90k - $110k + benefits
ArtBridge empowers local artists to transform prominent urban spaces, primarily by turning construction fencing into canvases for art. Founded in 2009 by artist and designer Rodney Durso, ArtBridge’s exhibitions prioritize the social impact of its exhibitions, aiming to amplify voices that have been historically marginalized. ArtBridge’s programs include Bridging the Divide – an exhibition/fellowship program at public housing developments, for which it recently received a $1 million grant from the City of New York.
