Do you have a passion for art? Do you want to learn more about the local arts scene? Do you want to give back to your community?

If you answered YES to any of these questions, then consider becoming a SAMbassador! If you want to get involved, we're always in need of friendly volunteers in the following areas:

Reception Desk:  SAM needs volunteers with a passion for art to staff our museum desk!  Volunteers are in charge of greeting people, keeping attendance, and answering all questions visitors may have about the museum or art school. We'll occasionally have additional administrative tasks for you, such as preparing labels for museum mailings.

Programs:  SAM needs volunteers to assist with specific special programs such as ArtWalk (on the third Thursday of ever month) and other events at SAM, including fundraisers, receptions, and children's activities!


Volunteerism is currency that appreciates. To become a SAMbassador, fill out the volunteer application form below or download the paper application and submit via email or snail mail [instructions for old-school submission are included on the paper form.]
