Volunteer for Events & Programs

The Frye organizes a variety of events throughout the year, including exhibition openings, art history lectures, concerts, film screenings, and performances. As an Events & Programs Volunteer, you greet visitors, check-in registrants, or help staff with last-minute preparations. You are warm, energetic, work well under pressure, and are able to put people at ease when they have concerns.
