Colgate University, a highly-selective residential liberal arts university located in the picturesque central New York village of Hamilton, announces its search for a Curator of Collections (Open Rank), Picker Art Gallery. Considered one of the nation’s most beautiful campuses, Colgate takes pride in the active engagement of its students and faculty in local, national and global communities.

Currently located on Colgate University’s beautiful campus, the collection of the Picker Art Gallery features approximately 11,000 objects from antiquity to the present, including approximately 8,000 works on paper, 1,400 photographs, 900 paintings, and 300 sculptures. Colgate University is one of the country’s leading liberal arts colleges, with a student population of about 2,900 and a faculty of 300.
