Deputy Director

Samuel S. Fleisher Art Memorial

The Deputy Director is a senior leadership position charged with overseeing the progress and success of Fleisher Art Memorial’s organizational strategies (akin to a Chief Strategy Officer). These include institution-wide assessment and evaluation to ensure that programmatic and operational initiatives effectively and efficiently align with Fleisher’s mission, vision, and intended public impact, in service to Philadelphia residents who face barriers accessing art education and experiences

In the coming months, the Deputy Director will provide critical leadership to staff and faculty in implementing its post-pandemic recovery plan by leading data-driven analysis of newly-developed online and offsite programs to leverage new mission-aligned opportunities and to build capacity.

Prior to the start of the pandemic, Fleisher staff and board had drafted its strategic plan, broadly outlining strategies under three core imperatives: Education, Access, and Empowerment. In close collaboration with the Executive Director, the Deputy Director will develop, communicate, execute and sustain strategic plan and initiatives in ways that are rooted in equitable access to art, including DEIAB strategies. They will provide leadership, strategic direction, and oversight for Fleisher’s programming that engages more than 20,000+ children and adults each year in-person and a new online audience.

The successful candidate will be a team-oriented leader who finds fulfillment in supporting a collective vision. They will harness the energy of an ambitious creative team towards shared goals, and embrace an intentional organizational culture of learning, transparency, and accountability. They are able to balance maximizing impact with a strategic application of resources and capacity. They are confident and diplomatic, able to cultivate and facilitate partnerships and relationships. An open, curious appreciation for the visual arts is essential.
