Volunteer Position Descriptions:
Gallery Monitors will be stationed in the various gallery spaces hosting our ArtPrize exhibits. They will make sure the art is protected and keep the gallery running smoothly.
Greeters will be stationed at the front doors of UICA and at the top of the various floors exhibiting ArtPrize works. Greeters will welcome our guests to the UICA, answer any questions the visitor might have and move the visitors in the direction of the exhibits.
We will have stations for guests to register to vote for the ArtPrize pieces. Voter Registrars will be stationed here to aid the visitor in registering for voting at UICA.
NEW! Hospitality + Gallery Services:
Hospitality volunteers will provide guests with information about Membership opportunities, Fall 2015 Exhibitions, Underground Theater screenings, and more from our 4th floor galleries. Volunteers in this location will also orient guests and help wayfinding direction.

To help prepare you for your shift, UICA will be hosting a brief volunteer orientation on Wednesday, September 9 from 5:30 - 7:00 pm. The orientation will include a tour of the galleries, introduction to the work on display, and a tutorial for signing in and out for your shifts. During this time staff will also review the volunteer handbook and frequently asked questions.
Thank you for your commitment!
Please note: If you sign up as a Gallery Monitor for the Education Days Time Slot, you will need to undergo a background check. Please include your date of birth when filling out your information. Volunteering during Members Only hours does not require a background check. Education Days specific times are set aside for school groups, while Members Only hours are times set aside for UICA and ArtClub members (you do not need to be a UICA or ArtClub member to volunteer!).
