Gallery Volunteers receive training and earn tuition credit toward taking art classes at VisArts, or High School Students may earn volunteer service SSL approved hours.
Volunteers must complete a 60 min orientation before they begin volunteering.
After applying online, an email will be sent to you with additional information about orientations.
In an attempt to keep our gallery spaces safe and follow physical distancing guidelines, we are not accepting submissions from volunteers at this time.
Gallery Guides volunteer to lead tours and have casual conversations with visitors about the artwork in our four galleries and seven artist studios. Gallery guides commit to a regular two-hour shift every week for a period of about three to four months, with the potential for extension. Potential volunteers must apply and complete three training sessions before giving tours. Applications are open for the spring, summer, and fall semesters. This is open to all adults, ages 18+.
Gallery Hours: Wednesday & Thursday 12:00 – 4:00 pm, Friday 12:00 – 8:00 pm, and Saturday & Sunday 12:00 – 4:00 pm.
