1: The Noyes Museum of Art of Richard Stockton College The Noyes Museum of Art of Richard Stockton College first opened in 1983 in Oceanville, NJ. It was created by local entrepreneurs Fred W. and Ethel (Lingelbach) Noyes, Jr. who were avid art and antique collectors. In the early 2000’s, it joined with Richard Stockton College, and since then has been a benefit to students and lovers of the arts. Its mission is to “[provide] the southern New Jersey region an opportunity to learn about, explore, and experience the arts,” (The Noyes Museum of Art of Richard Stockton College, n.d.). There are a variety of people from the director to security that keep this art museum up, running, and continuing to grow.
3: Right at the entrance of the Noyes Museum, the job of the exhibition designer is on display. They have "the "eye" to project how all the ideas of others, and the selected objects, will appear in an exhibition," (Glaser & Zenetou, 1996, p. 94). The museum has an Alice in Wonderland exhibition going on at the moment, and the front entrance was designed to look like the rabbit hole.
4: Though I did not see the security staff from the front entrance or in the lobby, their presence was known through security cameras and doors that shut close at closing time. Security chiefs and/or guards are "responsible for securing and protecting the museum's building, collections, personnel, and on-site funds such as money from store sales or dining operations, from theft, injury, damage, destruction, and deterioration," (Schlatter, 2008, p. 92).
5: The lobby is where the Visitor Services Manager position takes in effect in "[supervising] a cadre of staff and volunteers who are responsible for admissions ticketing, parking, ... [and] visitor information desks," (Schlatter, 2008, p. 94). For example, the front desk woman addressed the questions I had about the museum as well as took my money for admission. | Written material on the lobby's counter describes various art programs that are present within the museum. The editor "prepares and supervises the production of the printed material for the institution," (Glaser, 1996, p. 90).
6: The Noyes Museum has many art education programs setup for children and adults alike, Educators "instigate, facilitate, and expand the museum's educational mission by creating and evaluating opportunities for informal learning," (Schlatter, 2008, p. 80).
7: This space in particular is dedicated to teaching young children the history and creation of art. As stated in the 2003 Art Museum Education Programs Survey (2003), "Half of art museums surveyed have kids' activity areas in their galleries many of which include hands-on art areas," (p. 4).
8: The exhibition space presents a combination of many jobs within the museum such as he curator position. The curator as seen in an art museum "organizes exhibitions, including developing the themes (like the Alice in Wonderland theme), choosing objects, writing text, and overseeing the installation," (Schlatter, 2008, p. 57).
9: The preparator position handles almost everything that has been installed, arranged, and possibly even created by them as seen with the installation of the tent and the wires that hold it up (Schlatter, 2008, p. 70). | The lighting designer/technician is the person who creates the lighting effects in each exhibition.
11: "The Information officer works in the field of informatics, which is the collection, classification, storage, retrieval, and dissemination of information via computer systems," (Schlatter, 2008, p. 84). The Noyes Museum has computer monitors set-up throughout the museum displaying different programs that our happening within the museum as well as using computer systems to process admission.
