Volunteer

Overview

Lux needs you and your passion for contemporary art.  The incredible support of community supporters and local volunteers makes it possible for us to sustain the programs that connect art lovers with art and artists. Email volunteer@luxartinstitute.org

Types

Liaison

Liaisons are vitally important to the visitor experience at Lux. Liaisons serve as the link between Lux’s artist-in-residence and the public by conducting studio tours, facilitating dialogue between visitors and the artist, and assisting with onsite workshops.

Lux welcomes lifelong learners from all stages of life – college students, recent graduates, working professionals, stay-at-home parents, retirees – who seek a volunteer opportunity that offers exposure to world-renowned art and artists. 

If interested, please email education@luxartinstitute.org

INTERN

Lux Art Institute’s internship program provides high school, college, and graduate students with in-depth training and valuable work experience in an intimate non-profit museum environment. Student interns support designated departments of the organization and gain valuable exposure to diverse aspects of museum administration. While at Lux, student interns are mentored by Lux staff and participate directly in the development and implementation of Lux programming.

If interested, please submit your resume to info@luxartinstiture.org

Donate Materials

We are always looking for donated materials and found objects to use in our inventive and environmentally friendly youth art projects. Before you throw away wood and metal scraps, fabric, buttons, frames and anything else that might just thrive in a second life as part of an art piece, think of Lux!
