VOLUNTEERING AT GROUNDS FOR SCULPTURE!

Volunteers play a vital role in all facets of our operation and create a warm and friendly atmosphere for our visitors. Grounds For Sculpture offers a range of volunteer opportunities for people with a variety of interests, schedules, and skills. At this time, our volunteers must be at least 18 years old.
 

Education Volunteers
Education Volunteers assist with Education Workshops for adults, families and children. They may also offer their services as Gallery Guides in our indoor exhibit areas. Additional training is available (usually in the fall and spring) for volunteers seeking to become Docents. Docents provide guided tours of the outdoor sculptures for school, corporate, and public groups. 

Special Events Volunteers
Special Events Volunteers have a variety of opportunities to assist Grounds For Sculpture staff with all-day events in the park such as “Day at the Fair” and ”Artists in Action”.  At these events, volunteers may be asked to greet guests and give directions to specific activities. Special Events Volunteers also provide support services at GFS hosted concerts and performances.

Grounds For Sculpture has several venues that are rented to the public for Corporate and Private Events such as meetings and weddings. Volunteers are often requested to represent GFS by directing guests to the event site, answering questions, and assuring that the guests feel welcome.

We also have volunteers that serve as Community Marketers. These volunteers maintain supplies of GFS promotional materials at public locations such as libraries and community centers.

Guest Services Volunteers
Guest Services Volunteers may assist in two different locations, the Visitors Center and Domestic Arts Building. In both of these locations, volunteers are specially trained to answer guests’ questions about GFS and answer phones. 

When our beautiful new shop opens in May 2014, our Museum Shop Volunteers will be sharing information with patrons about the artists whose work is sold in the shop and helping to maintain the merchandise displays.

Park Guides are valuable resources for our guests in the park. They stroll the grounds on busy days, answering guests’ questions, assisting with directions, and assuring the safety of our guests and the outdoor sculpture.

Special Projects Volunteers
Special Projects Volunteers enjoy variety! They pick and choose projects that suit their interests. As a busy, thriving, growing museum, special requests for volunteer assistance may come from any of the GFS departments. Volunteers interested in helping with these (usually) short term projects may have the opportunity to assist with mailings, organizing photo files, screening videos, or representing GFS at a community event. The variety is endless!
