About CUE:

CUE Art Foundation is a 14-year-old visual arts center dedicated to creating essential career and educational opportunities for emerging and under-recognized artists. Through exhibitions, arts education, and public programs, CUE provides artists and audiences with sustaining and meaningful experiences and resources.

CUE is dedicated to diversity and is an equal opportunity employer.



CUE Art Foundation seeks a creative youth advocate to co-teach the 2018-2019 season of the CUE Teen Collective.

The CUE Teen Collective is a free after school program designed for NYC high school students interested in pursuing art careers. Participants meet once weekly from October through June to investigate the contemporary art world, develop professional skills, and produce a group exhibition in CUE’s gallery space.

The CUE Teen Collective aims to cultivate teens’ personal artistic voices and to expand their notions of what art can be and how artists function within the world today. We pay particular attention to collaboration, non-traditional art and artists, and hybrid career paths. Through field trips, engagement with CUE’s exhibiting artists, and conversations with art professionals, participants are offered unique access to NYC’s art world.

Within this framework, CUE is searching for an Assistant Artist Educator who is excited to share their perspective and experience with young artists and to help shape a curriculum that fosters exploration, experimentation, and critical inquiry.
