Art Complex Museum


Our volunteers continue to contribute their time and talents to support the many activities of the museum. They share their knowledge and enthusiasm with museum visitors and provide an invaluable service to our community.

New volunteers begin with an orientation session which provides them with the opportunity to learn about the history of the museum, events and exhibits. Openings for volunteers exist in several different areas including: tending the front desk, working with school groups or respite guests, assisting the staff at special events, concerts and tea ceremonies, helping to keep the museum’s scrap books up to date, assisting with public relation projects and working with the staff during opening receptions.

Volunteers glean important information from our exhibiting artist(s) when they attend one of the museum’s gallery talks/ coffee socials. These informal gatherings are open to the public and are usually held soon after an exhibit opens.

Volunteers and staff are invited to go on field trips to other museums and galleries in New England, where docents share their knowledge and hospitality. A highlight of the volunteer year is the annual holiday luncheon where we all celebrate the accomplishments of the past year and congratulate each other for a “job well done.”

Volunteering is an exciting way to spend your free time. You are never too young or too old to learn something new. We welcome adults, high school and college students to join our volunteer team.
