Being a volunteer is a rewarding experience. The museum welcomes volunteers, age 16 years and older, to greet visitors, help them navigate through the galleries, assist with art projects, and become an advocate for art. There are many opportunities to learn about art and assist visitors with their museum experience. The important qualities of a volunteer are a love of art, desire to learn about art, and the ability to share information with visitors. No prior knowledge of art or art history is necessary. Volunteers are given on-site training and asked to sign-up for several opportunities per month.
