RESIDENTIAL CURATORIAL FELLOWSHIP – The Jeanne and Ralph Graham Collections Fellow

Cranbrook Art Museum is accepting applications for a paid, full-time, curatorial assistant in residence as its 2024–2025 Jeanne and Ralph Graham Curatorial Fellow. This is a unique opportunity for an emerging museum curator with a passion for contemporary art, craft, or design to play an important role in the presentation and interpretation of Cranbrook’s diverse collections and exhibitions programs.

The Fellow is a key member of the curatorial team and is actively involved in both research as well as the development and execution of temporary exhibitions. The intimate scale of the institution ensures that Fellows are exposed to all aspects of museum operations. Since its inception in 1998, the Jeanne and Ralph Graham Curatorial Fellowship at Cranbrook Art Museum has attracted talented new curators who have gone on to lead curatorial programs in major museums across the country.

Reporting directly to the Associate Curator of Collections, and working collaboratively with other staff of the Art Museum, as well as staff from other Cranbrook units, the Fellow will assist in the research and development of exhibitions; research the holdings of the Art Museum; and help with the display and interpretation of art.
