Exhibition Volunteer

General Description:

Come relax in our “backyard” this winter! The CHS is seeking volunteers for our Patios, Pools, & the Invention of the American Backyard exhibition, December 18, 2018 through February 23, 2019!

We are seeking Exhibition Monitors who can volunteer to be in the galleries a few hours each week for the ten-week visit of this traveling exhibition from the Smithsonian.

The CHS needs volunteers who can give no less than one three-hour block of time each week. Our greatest need is for volunteers on Saturdays and on Fridays from 9:00 to 5:00, followed by Tuesdays, Wednesdays or Thursdays from noon to 5:00. We are closed Sundays, Mondays, and the Christmas and New Year’s holidays.

Duties will include monitoring CHS second floor galleries, assisting visitors, and collecting exhibit evaluation data. No experience is required. We will provide all needed orientations and training.
