The Grace Museum seeks volunteers with great people skills to help out with a variety of events that occur monthly on ArtWalk nights. ArtWalk is a community event led by the Center for Contemporary Arts that occurs on the second Tuesday of each month. Various Downtown groups host various activities for the community. Activities volunteers can help with include: gallery attendant, make ‘n take, visitor services, among others.
The Grace Museum would like volunteers to assist with occasional clerical duties such as preparing copies, or bulk mailings. Tasks include labeling collateral, sorting by zip code, and other.
The love of art and the desire to share art with others is the only prerequisite to becoming a gallery teacher. Gallery teachers will have special training sessions once a month that will include talks, training and teaching by the Director of Education and the Chief Curator to prepare you to give tours to groups that range in age from preschool to adults.
If you enjoy our educational programs, you will definitely enjoy being behind the scenes in the planning! Education volunteers help with hanging art for our annual Youth Art Month student art exhibition, assist with art activities during the Children’s Art and Literacy Festival, and much more!
Gallery Attendants assist in protecting the art and artifacts and making visitors to our galleries feel comfortable and welcome. They are important not only to the safety of the art but help provide confidence in artists and lenders that their works will be safe at The Grace Museum which affords the museum the ability to bring in higher quality exhibitions.
The Grace Museum seeks volunteers with great people skills to help out with a variety of tasks related to The Grace Coffee Shop…and more! This is the Museum store and serves as a location for our guests to learn more about the history of the Museum. Retail experience is a plus!
The Grace Museum hosts three opening receptions for its exhibitions each year. During these receptions, volunteers assist with greeting guests, serving as gallery attendants, welcoming guests to the reception area, and much more. Another favorite is Fall Benefit where volunteers assist with table arrangements, decor placement, and other tasks.
Greet and assist visitors with a high level of customer service, providing a welcoming and friendly environment for the visitors to enjoy their experience.
