Exhibitions and Special Projects Manager
The Exhibitions Program is an important part of Fleisher’s overall mission to make art accessible to everyone, regardless of economic means, background, or artistic experience. Through our robust slate of free public exhibitions, residency and fellowship programs for professional artists, and ongoing partnerships with various community stakeholders – the Exhibitions Program supports the artistic growth and skill development of emerging and professional artists. Reporting to the Programs Director, the Exhibitions and Special Projects Manager works closely with their three colleagues in the programs department including managers of Adult Programs, Youth Programs, and Community Programs to integrate activities and provide an environment in which artistic exploration and innovation is fostered and promoted throughout the entire Fleisher community.
Community Partnerships in the Arts Teaching Artist
Since 1997, Fleisher has partnered with K-8 public schools and social service agencies in South Philadelphia to bring hands-on art-making directly to students. Through a co-teaching model, Fleisher’s Teaching Artist works closely with a classroom teacher to design a ten-week curriculum of creative projects that enhance students’ learning in core subjects, like math, science, social studies, and language arts, while developing studio and technical skills in the visual arts. Each year, 345 students are provided with 30 hours of free arts instruction in one of 15 arts-integrated residencies, and given a sketchbook and art-making supplies to keep.
After School Teaching Artists
“Creative Labs” at Fleisher will aim to provide young people from K-8 a safe, inclusive art program during after-school hours emphasizing art as a thought process that allows young people to retain their high level of creativity and critical thinking. In addition to visual art, we’re seeking teaching artists with skills in puppetry, movement, and creative writing.
