There seems to be quite a bit of turnover in the Charlotte art world lately. In the past, when we have been in the market for a job, we frequented several websites including the Arts & Science Council; the New York Foundation for the Arts, and the American Alliance of Museums. If you are interested in finding a job in the cultural sector, you might want to check out the sites mentioned. Below, you will find a few interesting jobs that are currently open here in Charlotte. (FYI, we hear there will be a few more positions posted soon.)
