A Salute to Our Volunteers

April is National Volunteer Month. We could not be one of the nation's top art museums without the assistance of our volunteers.

“Our volunteers are special to the museum, especially during the past six years of expansion and change," Liz Pim, Volunteer Manager said. “They help people find their way and always greet our visitors with a warm welcome. They help in other ways too – educating our public, ushering for performing arts and film, directing (or redirecting) guests, assisting with audio tours, and supporting our events. They are a valuable part of our team.”

More than 600 volunteers gave more than 60,000 hours of their time to the museum in the past year.

Volunteer contributions range from assisting visitors at the information desk and helping prepare special events to working at the annual Parade the Circle, serving as docents for school groups, and assisting in curatorial projects. These volunteers include high school students to college interns, community leaders to retirees.
