Gallery Volunteer

The Gallery Volunteer will play a crucial role in maintaining exhibition capacity during the Speed’s upcoming major shows in 2018, including Women Artists in the Age of Impressionism.


  • Work with our Security staff to monitor the number of guests in the gallery space.
  • Using an attendance clicker, count and record the number of guests in the exhibition.
  • Check exhibition tickets for the correct time.
  • Greet guests as they enter and exit the exhibition.
  • Provide wayfinding and answer basic guest questions about the Speed.
  • Communicate accurate and current attendance numbers to Security staff on an hourly basis.


  • Ideal Gallery Volunteers are friendly, social, calm under pressure, proactive and detail oriented.
  • You must be comfortable with standing and sitting for intervals (typical shifts are four hours.)
  • An interest in art and a knowledge of the Speed’s collection and surroundings are helpful but not required.
  • Shifts are available during all open days; the greatest need is on weekends and during our monthly After Hours event (every 3 rd Friday from 5pm-10pm.)
