Lightner Museum is excited to announce that it has hired Sterling Search & Consulting, a national search firm located in Jacksonville Florida, to recruit its next Executive Director.

“We’re looking for a dynamic leader who can reengage with our community and stakeholders,” says Teresa Radzinski, Chair of the Board of Trustees. “This is a unique opportunity to take advantage of a blended museum and event space, and really elevate the museum’s status among locals and tourists alike.”

Lightner Museum receives roughly one hundred thousand visitors annually. The new Executive Director will focus on expanding exhibits, programming and staffing, while curating an exceptional experience for every visitor. The ideal candidate should possess the right mix of energy, creativity, and vision to make that happen. The goal is to maintain the museum's excellent reputation while also elevating its status as the cultural and artistic centerpiece of the Ancient City.

For the past 25 years, Lightner Museum has taken on multiple projects, including the opening of the new Ballroom and staging highly acclaimed exhibits such as Downton Abbey and Edgar Degas. Other events include speaker series, curator tours, learning labs, and after hours. And there’s so much more to come!

Lightner Museum is in the former Alcazar Hotel and home to one of the finest collections of 19th century art in the country. The three floors of the museum are unique and represent different types of artwork. A job description is posted at https://lightnermuseum.org/jobs/.
