Deadline: Sunday, December 1, 2019
For Spring 2020, VisArts is seeking volunteer gallery guides to lead tours and have casual conversations about the artwork in our galleries. Gallery guides will gain skills in public speaking, audience engagement, researching artwork, and interpreting and analyzing contemporary art. After being trained, gallery guides have the opportunity to apply museum and art education strategies during gallery tours and increase their knowledge of contemporary art. Other benefits include opportunities to earn credit toward art classes at VisArts, attend monthly professional development meetings, and gain behind-the-scenes access to the galleries.
VisArts is a non-profit arts center, with four galleries and seven artist studios, located in Rockville, MD, a short walk from the Rockville Metro Station on the Red Line.
