Arts + Culture

Lindauer has deep experience and a passion for providing retained executive search and talent services in the arts and culture arena. Our work has included major global institutions and world-class museums, thriving regional and community arts organizations, leading orchestras and symphonies, vibrant performing arts venues and university museums, and arts education in both secondary and higher education contexts. Our extensive expertise includes organizations large and small, from distinguished to emerging brands.

We place leaders and build teams. We understand audiences, patrons and members, community and civic engagement, regional contexts, and shifting resources. Our expertise enables us to recognize inherent opportunities and challenges, and to identify the qualities required to achieve outcomes across a range of organizational maturities. We have expertise in finding candidates who have the skills, talents, passion, and experiences necessary to work effectively with key constituents including artistic personnel, curatorial staff, program producers, educators, invested boards, and leading philanthropists.

Our team also recognizes the critical role of inclusion and access. Since our founding, Lindauer has been a relentless champion for diversity, equity, and inclusion in nonprofits – including in the arts and culture arena – since the firm’s founding. Our team today continues its leadership and advocacy inequity and anti-racism through our work with Boards, leaders, hiring managers, search peers, a trusted network of industry advisors and consultants, and an extraordinary roster of talented professionals.
