We Need Volunteers

The Art Center volunteer program offers a variety of opportunities to assist during our programs and events. Volunteers are regularly needed during exhibition openings, lectures, family programs, receptions, and special events.

Volunteers are a valuable part of the Art Center community; we appreciate their time and contributions. As a volunteer, you will get free admission to events, meet people in the field, and earn our gratitude! If you are interested in and love to learn about art, enjoy helping out with successful events, and/or have docent or educational experience, we can really use your help.
