Volunteer Opportunities

The Museum’s Volunteers provide key support to the museum and its education programs. Volunteers contribute invaluable assistance in facilitation of art educational programs for K-12 students and our Public Art Park tour program. They also reinforce the museum’s commitment to providing all visitors—students, seniors, adults, and children—with a positive experience and an opportunity to engage with contemporary art on a variety of levels. 


To learn more about the volunteering, please contact Curator of Education Christina Alegria at
