The MSC Exhibits Team often needs help organizing the exhibits shop or finishing projects. There are two opportunities to assist the Team on an on-going, as needed basis. If you feel comfortable working in a shop environment and enjoy working with your hands the Exhibits Team would love your assistance. This is also a fantastic opportunity for volunteers looking to gain basic experience in museum exhibits fabrication.
Please see below for further information regarding the two opportunities:
Fabrication Assistants: Are you interested in helping create exhibits, but don’t have significant fabrication experience? You can still help us out by taking the pieces we create and putting the finishing touches on them .
Duties: Sanding, painting, edge-routing, and clear-coating.
Shop Assistants : In the process of maintaining and making new exhibits, we make a lot of sawdust! Periodically, we could use some extra hands cleaning and organizing. This volunteer opportunity is suitable for high school volunteers and older. This opportunity is also suitable for groups of volunteers looking for a one-day project.
Attention to detail
Willingness to adhere to safety rules
Ability to move around the shop, which often has extension cords, air hoses, dust and exhibit pieces on the ground, in the air, and everywhere
Training: Shop orientation and project guidelines provided by Exhibit Fabrication
Schedule: Exhibits Assistants volunteer opportunities are presented on an on going, as needed basis. Opportunities to volunteer will be offered in advance.
