About

The Volunteer Guest Curator will assist in creating contemporary art exhibitions that are fun, entertaining and meaningful to Girl Scouts and our community, yet still provide a strong learning environment.

Following direction from the Vice President of Marketing, the Volunteer Guest Curator may propose the exhibition themes, storylines, exhibitions titles and individual works of art selected from individual artists, prepare a compelling exhibition statement and sub-statements that are both descriptive and insightful, propose the individual art labels, and assist in planning, designing and installing the exhibition. The Volunteer Guest Curator may, under the direction of the Vice President of Marketing, assist in promoting and marketing the exhibition. The Volunteer Guest curators will work on-site for approximately 8-10 hours per month, though there is flexibility in this requirement. A commitment of 6 months is expected. Specific duties include, but not limited to, the following:

  • Prepare approximately 150 word curator’s statement. This is not an artist's statement, but can use artist’s quotes and ideas.
  • Recommend the Exhibition title that captures the essence of the exhibition.
  • Make suggestions for art installation and design
  • Assist with the installation

This is a rotating position and the council will seek four volunteers per year to fulfill the duties of Guest Curator. The first quarter for art installation will be for July - September. Second Quarter is October through December, Third Quarter is January - March. Fourth Quarter is April - June.
