Media Relations Manager

The Phillips Collection is actively recruiting for a Media Relations Manager to join the Marketing & Communications Department.

Founded by art collector and philanthropist Duncan Phillips in 1921, The Phillips Collection has been collecting modern and contemporary art for one hundred years. Duncan Phillips’s former home—and additions to it—in Washington’s historic Dupont Circle neighborhood provides a unique setting for the growing collection of over 5,000 works. Following Phillips’s unconventional approach to exhibitions, The Phillips Collection galleries are frequently rearranged to facilitate new conversations between artworks and fresh experiences for visitors.

In addition to presenting selections from the permanent collection and special exhibitions, The Phillips Collection also offers award-winning education and community engagement programs for audiences of all ages and backgrounds, including initiatives at its satellite campus Phillips@THEARC.

The Phillips Collection is a private, non-government museum, supported primarily by donations.

The Media Relations Manager will maintain and improve upon the museum’s media relations efforts, under the supervision of the Chief Communications Officer and Director of Marketing, through devising and implementing comprehensive media strategies for exhibitions, events, partnerships, and the institution.

Strategies, promotions, and initiatives will be designed to demonstrate the museum as a forward-thinking institution that is committed to diversity, equity, accessibility, and inclusion (DEAI) by maximizing visibility through varied outlets. The Media Relations Manager will be a critical part of the Marketing and Communications team, assisting the department as needed with social media, the website, and administrative duties.

This is a full time exempt position with a salary range of $50,000-$55,000 annually.
