Green­Wood is seeking a consult­ing curator/​project coor­di­na­tor to develop a Conser­va­tion by Design 2.0 exhi­bi­tion. The orig­i­nal Conser­va­tion by Design was a large-scale trav­el­ing exhi­bi­tion of wood art designed to raise aware­ness about sustain­able forestry and respon­si­ble wood use. Featur­ing the work of over 70 artists, it opened at the RISD Museum of Art in 1993, trav­eled across the country and closed at the Renwick Gallery of the Smith­son­ian Insti­tu­tion in 1996.

Respond­ing to global impacts of climate change, Green­Wood aims to expand the exhibition’s focus on sustain­able craft to include a collab­o­ra­tive and replic­a­ble educa­tional frame­work. The project will connect working artists and students in wood­work­ing programs with regional envi­ron­men­tal consul­tants around the country, sharing knowl­edge and inspir­ing their creation of work for a trav­el­ing exhi­bi­tion. The show will ener­gize local and national commu­ni­ties to address forest preser­va­tion and conser­va­tion of wood resources.

This half-time posi­tion runs from October 2022 to April 2023. The curator will work closely with the Green­Wood direc­tor and board, advanc­ing the Green­Wood mission and foster­ing a commit­ment to diver­sity and inclu­sion.
