Looking for a meaningful and rewarding way to make new friends and help the Museum at the same time? Become a Dallas Museum of Art volunteer! Get involved today!
The Center for Creative Connections (C3) is a dynamic experimental learning environment that provides interactive encounters with works of art and artists. C3 volunteers greet visitors, answer their questions, and personalize their Museum experience by providing information on the Museum’s collection, programs, and activities. In addition, volunteers manage the C3 space by organizing and maintaining the area and observing visitor flow. Volunteers also lead activities in the galleries and assist with special events.
Interested applicants must commit to the C3 Volunteer Program for a minimum of one year. In addition to a mandatory orientation, volunteers attend mandatory training sessions at the Museum throughout the year. Volunteers are required to work two shifts per month. Three-hour shifts are available Tuesday-Sunday between 11:00 a.m. and 5:00 p.m.
Applicants must be at least 16 years of age to participate in the opportunity. To request an application, contact Rhiannon Martin at rmartin@DMA.org. Applications are due Friday, January 10. Volunteers must attend a mandatory volunteer orientation on Saturday, January 25, from 10:00 a.m. to noon.
Go van Gogh®
Go van Gogh® school outreach volunteers lead experiences in Dallas elementary classrooms that encourage students to look closely at works of art in the Museum's collection and make a creative expression. Mandatory training sessions take place from September through February. In addition, volunteers are asked to commit to presenting programs two mornings a month during the school year.
We are not currently accepting applications for the Go van Gogh program. If you would like to be placed on a list to be contacted in the future, e-mail Amy Copeland at acopeland@DMA.org.
The desire to communicate the power of art to others is the main requirement to become a docent. After completing a yearlong training program consisting of lectures, gallery talks, and workshops led by Museum staff and outside experts, docents conduct weekly tours for groups of visitors ranging from elementary school students to adult visitors.
We are not currently accepting applications for the docent program. If you would like to be placed on a list to be contacted in the future, e-mail Shannon Karol at skarol@DMA.org.
