Volunteer at the Portland Art Museum

The mission of the Portland Art Museum is to serve the public by providing access to art of enduring quality, educating a diverse audience about art, and by collecting and preserving a wide range of art for the enrichment of present and future generations. If you are interested in helping the Museum achieve this mission by providing much needed volunteerism, the Museum would like to hear from you!

Volunteer Opportunities

Thank you for your interest in volunteering with the Portland Art Museum. Unfortunately, there is currently a wait list for people to begin volunteering with us. Please click here to fill out an application to be placed on the waiting list. Your application will be held for three months during which time you will be contacted when an opportunity arises that meets your skills, schedule, and preference. Once contacted, the next step will be to undergo the Standard Orientation in which you will be taken on a tour of the various jobs that volunteers do, given a presentation on the policies of the Museum, and interviewed. The length of time between filling out the initial, online form and starting to volunteer will vary. Please feel free to direct any questions about volunteering to J Swofford, Volunteer Coordinator, at j.swofford@pam.org or 503-276-4288.
