The Columbia Museum of Art is the premier international art museum in South Carolina with a commitment to exhibiting art from around the world. The collection ranges from antiquity to the present day with a focus on European, American, modern and contemporary, and Asian art. A large gift from the Samuel H. Kress Foundation formed the nucleus of an important permanent collection of more than 6,000 objects of fine and decorative arts across a broad range of centuries and media.
The Museum is in a modern 128,000 square foot facility that opened in 1998 and is a captivating architectural building with 25 galleries, designed by George Sexton Associates of Washington, D.C., with art studios, a 160-seat auditorium, a library, and museum shop. Significant undeveloped space is earmarked for future gallery expansion. The Museum has an annual budget of $3.7 million and a full-time staff of 32. It serves as the cultural anchor of a newly revitalized downtown – blocks from the State Capitol and the historic campus of the University of South Carolina.
Columbia is South Carolina's largest city and the center of culture, government, education, and commerce. It is centrally located and within a two-hour drive of the Blue Ridge Mountains, and the beaches and historic sites of Charleston and coastal South Carolina.
The Columbia Museum of Art has openings for part-time gallery guards. Candidates must be professional, reliable, and able to work well with the public. Must be willing to work day, night & weekend hours. Pay rate starts at $8.50/hour DOE.
