A Part-Time Security Guard is needed for weekend and evening hours at the DCCA. The hours would include working Saturdays 10am - 5pm, and/or Sundays 12pm - 5pm, and evening coverage during special events (such as First Friday Art on the Town evenings). Part-time guards at the DCCA are many times artists still in school or recently graduated, who want to remain involved in the art-related field. Additional security and CPR experience is a plus. 


The Part-Time Security Guard is to ensure a positive, safe and secure environment for the entire facility. This includes the public viewing contemporary art in the galleries, the studio artists in the facilities, and the office area for the staff. The Security Guard is responsible for the overall well-being of the artwork, public safety, building safety, and employee safety at all times while on duty.

Anyone interested should contact Director of Security and Operations Antonio Calzada-Charma or call 302.656.6466 x7104.
