For Summer 2019, VisArts is seeking volunteer gallery guides to lead tours and have casual conversations about the artwork in the galleries. Gallery guides will gain skills in public speaking, audience engagement, researching artwork, and interpreting and analyzing contemporary art. Additionally, gallery guides will be trained and have the opportunity to apply museum and art education strategies during gallery tours. Other benefits include opportunities to earn credit toward art classes at VisArts, meet gallery staff, and gain behind-the-scenes access to the galleries.

VisArts is a non-profit arts center, located in Rockville Town Center, Rockville, MD, a short walk from the Rockville Metro Station on the Red Line. VisArts has four art galleries, seven artist studios, and additional art spaces and events.
