Volunteers are highly valued and relied upon at the Art Museum. Volunteers contribute hundreds of hours, their energy and expertise that allow the museum to succeed in its goal of bringing culture and art education to the people of Wyoming. If you are interested in volunteering, take a look at the opportunities below and contact the corresponding Museum staff member. 

Volunteer Opportunities

Adult Volunteer

We are currently building our Adult Volunteer Program. The main opportunities are in education, office assistance, marketing, and collections. Volunteers are also needed for special events. As a volunteer you will get to meet with artists, work with exhibitions, and explore the world of art. If you are interested please fill out the application form.

Teen Volunteer Program

We are currently strategizing a revamped Teen Apprentice Program into the Teen Volunteer Program. If you know a young person between the ages of 12 and 17 who is interested in community service hours in a creative field please have them fill out the application form.

Docent Program

Docents receive museum training and provide critical support for the museum's programs, including Shelton Studio programs, museum tours and special programs and projects. As a docent, you will have the chance to meet artists whose works are on exhibit, enjoy the camaraderie and explore the world of art.

We are starting a Student Docent Program through the Museum and Archive Coalition, a registered student organization at the University of Wyoming. University students from all backgrounds and levels will receive training and give once per month tours of current museum exhibitions. Other opportunities exist to help with education and public programs, collections management and more.

If you’re interested in the docent program, first become a volunteer! You must log at least 30 hours of volunteer time in order to qualify for the docent trainings.
