The California Museum of Photography has more than 500,000 photographs, photographic artifacts, and apparatus. This collection serves to promote understanding of photography and visual media by providing access and context to one of the largest and most comprehensive photographic resources in America. The CMP contains four interlinked collections: the Bingham Technology Collection, the Keystone-Mast Collection, the University Print Collection, and the Study Center Library Collection. Of these, the Bingham Technology Collection holds over 10,000 items, making it the second largest camera collection in America, while the Keystone-Mast Collection is the world's largest stereographic collection of over 400,000 original stereoscopic prints and original glass negatives. Collection projects have regularly been funded by the NEA, NEH, corporations, and foundations.

The Exhibition Manager will represent ARTSblock to the outside community, in particular in conversation with artists, galleries, and donors, and will interact frequently with visitors, scholars, and students, including giving exhibition tours and public talks.
