Volunteer & Internships


The Museum welcomes friendly people who enjoy engaging in dialogue with a variety of museum patrons of all ages, especially school‐aged children. Docents must have a sincere interest in art and history (though no formal background is required in either subject area), as well as a passion for lifelong-learning and education.

Becoming a docent is a commitment. Docents commit to a minimum of three years of service, including two years of weekly training during the academic year (September–May).

Note: The Museum recruits docents on an alternating yearly basis. The next docent recruitment cycle begins summer 2019. Applications received in the meantime will be held until then. Docent training is not an internship and cannot be used for course credit.

2019 Spring Internship Opportunities

They provide information about the Museum’s collections, exhibitions, and programming as well as general Museum information. Applicants must be enthusiastic, comfortable talking to visitors, and interested in art and history.

Museum Collegian Volunteers

Museum Collegians is a volunteer program for college and university students enrolled in an undergraduate or graduate program who enjoy art and art history. Recent college graduates are also welcome to apply. Museum Collegions assist with Family, Public, and Marketing programs and work with staff, artists, and visitors at events such as Family Day, Family Flicks, Film on the Green, Art Party, and Date Night. Museum Collegians may also help prepare materials for events. Applicants should be flexible and comfortable speaking with visitors. Museum Collegians must commit to volunteering for at least eight events per school or calendar year.

Museum Teens

Museum Teens are volunteers aged 14 to 18 who assist local artists and staff during Family Day: See + Do events at the Museum.  We welcome teens who love talking about art, making art, and helping families with art activities. Applicants should be flexible, comfortable speaking with visitors, and enjoy working with art materials. Teen volunteers must commit to volunteering for at least 4 Family Days during a school or calendar year and provide their own transportation. A parent/guardian release form must be submitted as part of your application if you are under 18.
