Become part of the team!

As part of a dynamic organization whose essence feasts on evolution, change, and discovery, our staff embraces the impossible each day – and makes it look easy! At the same time, the American Visionary Art Museum (AVAM) is a place of smiles and laughter.

If you are considering working at AVAM, we hope you will take your time to thoroughly tour the museum, read our education materials, and carefully understand the following: the American Visionary Art Museum is a most unique place to work. “Unique” meaning that AVAM is really three things:

  • a one-of-a-kind national museum & education center
  • a public temple for the exploration of imagination/intuition/self-reliance and human creativity at its best
  • a non-profit, charitable organization, duty-bound to run as an efficient small business; maximizing assets and income while minimizing all expense without comprise to AVAM’s mission and the equality of the visiting and learning experience provided to the public
