Become a volunteer at the Museum and help us achieve our nonprofit mission, educating visitors on the art and history of our great southwest and its surrounding areas!
SUPPORT THE MUSEUM THROUGH VOLUNTEERING:
We are in need of volunteers in a wide variety of opportunities, for the fall, winter and spring seasons, including:
FRONT DESK SUPPORT: Help our front desk greet visitors, make POS transactions for sales, maintain email lists and help with Museum Store customers. We are always in need of floaters who help guests find exhibitions, answer questions, watch sensitive areas of the Museum and assist our Front Desk with flow of visitors.
EDUCATION: Sign up to lead tours to scheduled groups of our Museum! Interested volunteers will need to “study up,” have related higher education or previous knowledge of the history and arts of the southwest and have the time to watch several tours from our more experienced guides.
EVENT SUPPORT: The Museum and its Gallery host several events for its members and guests each year. Volunteers are needed to help set up tables and chairs, monitor guests, help seat guests, attend to refreshments, and help distribute flyers for events.
NEWSLETTER, FLYERS AND OTHER MARKETING: The Museum communicates to its members and interested visitors through the email marketing service “Constant Contact.” Help is always appreciated in collecting and organizing photos, writing, editing and electronically designing the email announcements. If you have experience with designing brochures, the Museum would love to use your expertise to get the word out on events to the community. If you would like to help with press releases or other marketing endeavors, please know your work will be valued!
Our museum members receive invitations to special openings, discounts at the Museum Store and many exclusive opportunities. Become a member and uncover all the Tucson Desert Art Museum and Four Corners Gallery have to offer.
