Volunteers are the heart and soul of Phoenix Art Museum. This group of dedicated and passionate volunteers provides vital support to the Museum while working with staff and visitors in an energizing and inspiring environment. Volunteering is also a great way to get a behind-the-scenes look at the premiere arts institution in the Southwest. You do not need to have an art background to be involved—we will train you! However, you must be enthusiastic, flexible, and willing to learn new things.
