The Richmond Museum of History seeks a volunteer graphic designer to assist with creating print marketing materials for educational programs and special events. The Museum boasts a signifcant collection of historical photographs, artifacts, documents and ephemera that can be used in the design. Much of the design work can be completed remotely.
The museum has only limited graphic design software. If you are a skilled graphic designer who is reading this please consider helping us! We are a small staff with a lot of experience in history and archaeology but little to no graphic design experience. The flyers for recent events and exhibits are less than inspiring and some consider them to be downright ugly. Our staff would much rather use their limited time to focus on the collections managament or exhibit design than making poorly designed flyers.
The mission of the Richmond Museum Association is to preserve, display and educate about the history of Richmond, California and the surrounding area.
The Richmond Musuem Association (RMA) operates the Richmond Museum of History, located in a historic Carnegie Library. The Museum is open to the public Wednesday through Sunday from 1-4PM for a small admission fee. The largest artifact in the museum collection is the SS Red Oak Victory, a Victory Ship built in 1944 for use in the Pacific Theatre in World War II. The ship is open for docent lead and self guided tours on Tuesday, Thursday, Saturday and Sunday from 10-3.
The Richmond Museum Association (RMA) offers volunteer opportunities for people of all walks of life. Our community of like-minded volunteers works toward a common goal to inspire people through Richmond history. RMA will make you feel welcome whether you seek to develop professional skills, deepen your own personal interests or just want to feel more connected to the past. The Museum and SS Red Oak Victory depend on volunteers with a wide range of skills so we can accomplish goals like operating the ship under her own power or ensuring every local student visits the Museum once during elementary school. We offer a wide range of positions to fit diverse skill sets including everything from greeting guests to education to ship restoration and everything in between. Volunteering is fun and fulfilling, leading to health benefits and enhanced quality of life, so join us today!
