The Montclair Art Museum, together with its Vance Wall Art Education Center, engages our diverse community through distinctive exhibitions, educational programs, and collections of American and Native American art. Our mission is to inspire and engage people of all ages in their experience with art, including the rich inter-cultural and global connections throughout American history, and the continuing relevance of art to contemporary life.
After 100 years of service, MAM is recognized as the leading American art museum and community art school in Northern New Jersey. As an organization, we value: artistic inspiration, diversity of voices, individual and group creativity, and the importance of all arts to a civil, inclusive, and forward-thinking society.
We respect and welcome individual differences and strive to maintain an environment that fosters productivity, creativity, and individual satisfaction by celebrating the diversity of race, gender, nationality, age, religion, sexual orientation, and physical abilities.
The Montclair Art Museum Volunteer Program is open to anyone 13 years of age and older who is passionate about serving our community! Montclair Art Museum volunteers assist with numerous tasks, including: Art Truck, Children's and Family Programs, Clerical Help, Docent Program, Fundraising, Gardening and Grounds, Membership Tables, Special Events, and Yard School of Art.
Please note, the Montclair Art Museum does not accept volunteers for court-ordered community service or any other community service requirement that is a result of a disciplinary infraction.
