The Art Center relies on the loyalty and dedication of its volunteer corps to bring art and people together. Volunteer opportunities at the Art Center range from docentry – which requires extensive training and commitment to lead exhibition tours – to event and administrative volunteers, whose work is vital to our ongoing operations.

Event and administrative volunteers support the Art Center by assisting in a variety of tasks. To apply as an event/administrative volunteer, print the application and mail to:
