Volunteer Opportunities

  • Exhibition


Event Staff/Ushers work at live events and gallery openings to help assist patrons. Volunteers need to be able to stand for at least an hour at a time (possibly more, depending on event) and communicate clearly and comfortably with the public.

Administrative helpers work with the development department as needed on mailings and other tasks. Participants must have fine motor skills and be very organized. An ability to copy-edit is also desirable.

Gallery sitters: MASS MoCA assists DownStreet Art in finding staff for temporary downtown galleries during the summer and fall. Gallery sitters must be willing to work alone, learn about the works on view, and offer a welcoming presence to the public.

Other opportunities: Past volunteers have assisted with art installation, maintained live art exhibits (plants/animals, etc.), assisted with Free Day and other community activities, and participated in residencies and live performances.
