The museum needs volunteers who are available on weekends to greet visitors and answer questions at our welcome desk. Work as little as three hours per month, with orientation provided.

As a member of the Museum Guild, you will be invited to training sessions, exhibition previews, and occasional coffee meetings. Museum membership is encouraged but not required. All that’s needed is an interest in art and a willingness to engage with museum visitors.

For more information, please email Communications Manager Stacie Ross or call 440-775-8670.
