Come and Join Us as a Volunteer

 

The Peninsula Museum of Art is growing up, adding programs and features, expanding its corps of docents and volunteers.

All docents are volunteers, but not all volunteers are docents. The docents preside over the Museum lobby, greet visitors, answer questions about the exhibitions (and everything else, it seems), and lead tours of the exhibitions (by prior arrangement).

The docents meet during the week prior to the opening of a new exhibition for a training session, usually with the artist and/or curator present to provide detailed information and answer questions.

Volunteers bring a variety of much-needed skills and knowledge to the Museum, including: expertise in gallery lighting, event scheduling, record-keeping, conservation, library cataloguing, public relations, social media, graphic design, website updating, equipment maintenance, marketing, fundraising – the list is (or at least seems) endless.

All of our volunteers are vital to the Museum’s growth and development, and they are honored each December at the Volunteers’ Tea when the year’s VIV (Very Important Volunteer) is announced.

Come and join the PMA “family” of docents and volunteers. Call us at 650-692-2101 or register online. We hope to hear from you!
