Eric Carle Museum seeks director

Founding director Nick Clark leaving?

The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art in Amherst has begun a search for a new executive director. It seems to be seeking a replacement for H. Nichols B. Clark (at left), the founding director of the museum which opened in November 2002, but since it is after regular work hours I’m unable to confirm at this time that Clark is leaving. (Monday update: The museum is seeking an executive director to free up Clark, who is staying on, to focus on organizing exhibitions and events, according to the museum.)

A job listing on the museum’s website, which was also posed to the New England Museum Association site on July 3, begins:
“The Eric Carle Museum of Picture Book Art is seeking an Executive Director with strategic vision ready to lead it through its next phase of growth as it becomes a highly recognized international art museum. This is an exciting opportunity for an articulate and energetic manager with bold vision who can develop funding sources and oversee operations of a start up organization.”
More to come.
