The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center (MD Anderson), ranked #1 in the nation and one of the largest cancer centers of its kind in the world, invites nominations and applications for the inaugural role of Associate Vice President, Art Experience (AVP for Art Experience). As MD Anderson embarks on a multi-billion-dollar capital project to build and expand their physical footprint throughout the state of Texas and rejuvenate existing facilities, this is an exciting opportunity for an innovative and dynamic leader in the arts to develop a strategic vision to imagine and develop the premier art experience in healthcare, creating spaces of inspiration and hope.

Reporting directly to the Senior Vice President of Institutional Affairs and Chief Brand and Communications Officer, the AVP for Art Experience will collaborate with the President and other senior leaders across the organization to plan, curate, and maintain a major, multi-year investment in art collection and art installations. The collection and installations will be a destination for patients, caregivers, employees, and the public – locally, nationally, and internationally. The AVP for Art Experience will bring a deep understanding of art and a dedicated focus to realize arts fullest potential to heal, enhance stakeholders’ experiences, and optimize the overall ambiance of healthcare and public spaces across MD Anderson facilities. The AVP for Art Experience will have the opportunity to lead curation in new buildings and facilities, working with architects, a design firm, and facilities leaders to infuse art from the early design phase. In addition to developing an art experience and curation vision, the AVP for Art Experience will partner with philanthropic efforts, engage with key stakeholders internally and externally to explore and assess the art experience possibilities and impact, and develop strategies for an art program that furthers patient, staff, and community engagement.
