Volunteer Program

Volunteer Opportunities
Volunteers play a vital role in helping us fulfill our mission of service to the community. We are currently looking for dedicated and enthusiastic individuals to be part of the SMA family.  Volunteer areas include:
Docents (Tour Guides)
Join our group of volunteer docents and help visitors of all ages discover the meaning, beauty, and power of art!  Museum docents act as guides for school, community, and church groups that visit the Museum. As a docent you will have opportunities to learn about art, history, and Museum education from Museum staff, artists, and special guests.  Docents are expected to complete a 4-week docent training as well as attend monthly exhibition specific trainings. Docent training occurs in September and January. 
Special Events
Special events volunteers help with a variety of events throughout the year including Community and Family Night, Exhibition Openings, the Children's Art Festival, and the Art Ball.  Duties and time commitments during these events vary greatly and can be tailored to your unique needs and talents. 

Front Desk and Visitor Services
Our Front Desk and Visitor Services volunteers are the face of the Museum.  They help our visitors feel welcomed and informed, as well as assisting staff with phone calls, visitation records, security, and small projects.  

Exhibitions volunteers get to see the "behind the scenes" processes of Museum work.  These volunteers help with receiving and tracking artwork for our juried shows, hanging artwork in the Museum, and putting the finishing touches on our exhibitions.  This is a great opportunity for anyone who loves interacting with artwork and artists. 

Museum Interns help the Museum staff in three areas of Museum work: Education, Operations, and Curatorial. Interns work closely with Museums staff over the course of a semester and come away with great work experience and a greater understanding of non-profit and Museum work. For more details on our Intern program click here.
