Chairs, Deans, and Directors

Director of Collections and Research: The Olana Partnership, Hudson, NY

The Olana Partnership
The Olana Partnership (TOP) supports the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation (NYSOPRHP) in preserving and interpreting Olana State Historic Site (Olana).  TOP is both a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization and an education corporation chartered by the Board of Regents of the State of New York.  TOP’s annual operating budget is $1.5 million.  Through four decades, TOP has harnessed the passion and philanthropic support of thousands of supporters to restore Olana’s treasures of art, architecture, and landscape. TOP’s mission extends to the stewardship of Olana’s nationally-significant viewshed and to developing Olana as a vital educational resource for visitors from across the world and the communities of the region.  TOP’s vision is of a fully-restored Olana, vibrant with the activity of artists, scholars, students, and visitors, that will be the most widely-recognized artist’s home and studio in the world.

Olana State Historic Site
A National Historic Landmark, Olana is the greatest masterpiece of America’s preeminent artist of the mid-19thC, Frederic Edwin Church (1826-1900). He achieved international fame with paintings such as Niagara (1857) and The Heart of the Andes (1859) and created Olana over 40 years, beginning in 1860. Church designed every aspect of Olana: the eclectic fantasy of the main house, the bucolic assemblage of the farm complex, and the 250-acre landscape that provides a romantic, picturesque setting for the whole and engages sweeping 360-degree views.  Olana’s collections of art, artifacts, and archives total over 80,000 items and range widely, including Church’s own art and that of his contemporaries to the broad range of his and his family’s interests.  The Church-designed landscape includes parkland, farmland, an orchard, and five miles of scenic carriage roads.  Architectural collections include the Persian-inspired main house, Cosy Cottage, barns and outbuildings.  Collections in the main house include 16th- through 18th-century paintings, pre-Columbian artifacts, Mexican folk art, historic costumes, photography, and a 2,000-volume library. In 2015 there were approximately 170,000 visitors to the landscape and 30,000 visitors to the main house.

Position Description
TOP seeks a highly qualified individual for this newly-created senior management position.  The Director of Collections and Research will provide leadership and specific strategy to make Olana a world-renowned center for the study and presentation of American art and visual culture as they relate to the artwork and legacy of Frederic Edwin Church.  The Director of Collections and Research will be a key member of TOP’s senior management team, reporting to the President and working closely with all senior colleagues to realize TOP’s mission of inspiring diverse audiences through preserving and interpreting the full breadth of Olana’s collections of fine and decorative arts, architecture, and historic landscape, including Olana’s integral viewshed.  The Director of Collections and Research will be able to broadly interpret TOP’s mission statements and will be a part of the team fulfilling one aspect of its strategic plan - to “Make Olana Famous.”
