The Springfield Art Museum seeks an experienced and self-motivated individual for the position of Art Museum Security Officer.  This position is responsible for  professional security work relative to the safekeeping of the Springfield Art Museum, its property, exhibitions and collections.

The Springfield Art Museum is a beautiful facility on the edge of a tree-filled city park. The Museum is a city-owned facility and operates under authority of a nine-member board. Incorporated in 1928, the Museum was first operated entirely by volunteers and still relies heavily on community support in a variety of ways. The Museum has been financially supported by a property tax levy since 1940.  The present Museum boasts a collection of over 10,000 objects, numerous galleries, an education wing with multiple classrooms, a 392-seat auditorium and an historic amphitheater built in 1936 by the WPA. Most recently, the Museum has completed a full inventory of the collection, launched online access to portions of the collection and upgraded major components of the facility including new LED lighting and new climate control in the permanent collection galleries.  For additional information about the Museum, visit Springfield Art Museum.
