Volunteer Opportunities

Volunteer Appreciation Tea & New Volunteer Open House

1 pm     Newport Art Museum (76 Bellevue Avenue)

Please join us for the annual Volunteer Appreciation Tea! 

It's our opportunity to treat you for the many hours you dedicate to the Museum every year. Whether you assist with events, administrative jobs, in the Museum shop, or as a Gallery Guide, the Museum depends on your enthusiasm, support and expertise. Let us say thank you with a delicious tea served by the Museum staff.


Know someone who is curious about volunteering?

Bring them along to the Volunteer Open House!

Our Tea will also be an Open House for newcomers to learn about the many volunteer opportunities at the Museum. Enjoy the arts and giving back at the same time! We're looking for volunteers who are social, art loving, and (bonus!) tech saavy. We have a full schedule, and are looking for help in these areas:

  • Museum Shop salespeople
  • Greeters for events such as Art After Dark & Opening Receptions
  • Gallery Guides (docent program - will begin in Fall/Winter 2018)
  • Office and Administrative helpers
  • Wet Paint & Winter Speaker Series volunteers of all sorts!
  • Poster hanging & Museum catalogue distribution help
