Volunteer Positions

Volunteers help in a variety of invaluable ways–especially at our visitor services information desk and during B scene, the Blanton's art parties. A list of volunteer positions include:


The Blanton welcomes UT students as well as those from any university campus, and members of the greater Austin community who are cheerful, kind, helpful, empathetic, patient, service–oriented, and want to spend time in an arts-loving community. Volunteers meet other arts-interested adults and enjoy being at the museum for events and tours.

Please join us for volunteer orientation to learn more about the Blanton volunteer program. Apply online and then meet at the Blanton’s Michener Gallery Building at 1:00 pm on one of the following Sundays after you apply.

Upcoming volunteer orientation dates: February 9, March 2, April 6, May 18, June 29, July 27, August 31, 2014.
