It Takes Diversity of Thought, Culture, Background, and Perspective to Create a Truly Equitable and Inclusive Museum.

The Newport Art Museum’s mission is to share a diversity of art and experiences that spark reflection, inspiration, discovery, and connections within our Newport community and beyond. We are committed to cultivating and preserving a culture of inclusion because the collective sum of the individual differences, life experiences, knowledge, innovation, self-expression, and talent that our employees invest in their work ensures the Museum is a welcoming place for everyone. In recruiting for our team, we welcome the unique contributions that new employees can bring in terms of education, opinions, culture, ethnicity, race, sex, gender identity and expression, nation of origin, age, languages spoken, veteran’s status, color, religion, disability, sexual orientation and beliefs.
