Are you a contemporary arts enthusiast and eager to get involved in the local art community? Show your love by helping Atlanta Contemporary deliver exceptional arts and cultural exhibitions and programs year-round!

Our volunteers play an important role in ensuring contemporary art is accessible to all audiences. Volunteers receive hands-on experience in setting up for events, photographing exhibitions and public programs, as well as maintaining campus facilities and engaging with our patrons at the Welcome Desk.


Our volunteers are involved in all aspects of nonprofit management, including these types of projects:

  • Visitor services: Staff our Welcome Desk. You’ll interact with visitors, handle sign-in, answer phones, and oversee the shop.
  • Special events: We host a number of events and programs throughout the year. Volunteers assist with various aspects of event preparation such as event planning, set-up and clean-up, and guest registration, among other tasks.
  • Gallery preparation: Assist with exhibition installation and deinstallation. We change exhibitions regularly and need volunteers who are handy. Assignments include painting, graphics installation and removal, construction, and clean-up. Previous experience a must.


Volunteers must be at least eighteen years of age or older. We encourage those with a background or interest in contemporary art, studio art, or art education to sign up.
