Get Involved






YES! I want to support the Richmond Art Center by becoming a volunteer!

Thanks to our volunteers who generously donate their time, talents, energy and skills, we are able to host unique exhibitions, creative classes and community events. The Richmond Art Center would not exist without the help of amazing volunteers, like you!

What can I do as a volunteer?

We have a wide variety of volunteer opportunities to fit your schedule including:
• Staffing our front desk
• Installing exhibitions
• Assisting with youth classes
• Organizing and working at special events
• Helping with administrative projects
• Keeping our facilities in ship shape

You can sign up for weekly or bi-weekly shifts or come in on a project-by-project basis. Weekday, weekend, and evening shifts are available, depending on projects and availability.
