Join the FAM Volunteer Team!

The Fresno Art Museum is always seeking individuals who care about people, are excited about sharing their knowledge, and most of all, who love and care about art. If you have a background in customer service, art history, or education, all the better, but not required.

All volunteers must be Museum members and must submit a volunteer application (link below). FAM does not currently have volunteer docents. Our docents currently are a part of our education staff.

Office Support & Curatorial
We always need office support (answering phones and the door, filing, organizing). Our office support volunteers come on a set day or days every week for a half or full day. We occasionally use volunteers in our curatorial department, particularly during exhibition change and sometimes for special projects.
We also often need help with Special Events.
And if you have special a plummer, electrician, maintenance, grant writer, database, magician, bartender, musician, entertainer, and wish to help out occasionally or as needed, please let us know that too.

Event Volunteers

  • Trashique

FAM does occasionally utilize long-term volunteer interns from local colleges and universities. They have most commonly worked in Special Events and our Curatorial Department. Please submit a resume and cover letter describing exactly what you want to do and what sort of weekly/hourly commitment you are required or willing to make and for what period of time, the class, school, and the name of the instructor you will be working under to our HR Department. If we are interested, we will contact you to set up an interview with the appropriate department.
