    Executive Director, View Center for Arts and Culture

    The Adirondacks provide a source of inspiration & opportunity for artistic expression 

    View is a dynamic multi-arts center, housed in an impressive and modern 29,000 sq. ft. LEED certified building designed for arts programming; they are seeking a President/Executive Director to provide inspired organizational leadership driven by a passion for the arts. The seven-acre campus includes a sculpture garden and a new Nature Walkway through a unique wetland area. View moved from a former boat repair shop, on Old Forge Pond, to its current location across the street, but still maintains ownership of the boathouse – revitalizing this property is one of the most exciting opportunities for the next President/Executive Director.

    Open year-round, View draws artists from across North America and Europe for its large, juried exhibitions held in two exceptional gallery spaces. Regional and local artists are shown in two smaller galleries. A large auditorium with great acoustics, lighting, and seating is home to live performances. 

    The View seeks a President/Executive Director, who reports to the Board of Directors and works closely with the Board Chair and Executive Committee. The President/Executive Director has overall responsibility for the successful operation of View through the supervision of their direct reports, working committees, and volunteers. The President/Executive Director is responsible for administrative and management oversight of program services for the organization, with a focus on leading overall strategic direction and operational management for all aspects of the organization.

    Key qualifications include:

    • A background in arts management, with an appreciation for local communities of passionate individuals.
    • A minimum of five years of management experience.
    • A high degree of emotional intelligence, with an understanding of the business of the arts.
    • Relevant knowledge of the principles and practices of effective administration, organization, budget, and fiscal management, to include promoting and protecting the financial well-being of the organization.
    • Willingness and enthusiasm in engaging with the local community; Old Forge has a tight-knit community that focuses on helping each other out.
    • Experience working in all aspects of grants management, from identification through cultivation and successfully securing funding. Is preferred.
    • A sincere interest in and appreciation for collaboration with other arts, cultural, and community organizations.
