Provide cultural learning and enrichment to your Charlottesville neighbors by volunteering your time and skills at the Kluge-Ruhe Aboriginal Art Collection of U.Va., the only museum of Indigenous Australian art in the U.S.! Volunteering at the Kluge-Ruhe Collection is an opportunity to connect with the world beyond Charlottesville - all the way to Australia!

There are three ways to help at Kluge-Ruhe:

  • Docents prepare and give tours to the public about the museum's rotating exhibitions of Indigenous Australian art.
  • Educational Guides provide support for the museum's various free educational programs for children and families.
  • Gallery Attendants greet museum visitors, introduce current exhibitions, and answer questions.
Each volunteer role offers a unique opportunity to learn about Aboriginal art and share your knowledge and skills with the community.
