Volunteer at the YAC
Yeiser Art Center relies on awesome volunteers, our “YAC Pack,” to bring great visual arts programming to Paducah. We enjoy working with individuals who love art, and want to help grow the art community here in Paducah. The YAC Pack assists in general operations, as well as in every phase of an exhibition. From installation to reception and removal, the YAC Pack is an important asset to the Yeiser Art Center.
General Duties Include:
Daily help in the gallery/gift shop by welcoming our visitors and telling them about YAC, making sales from our gift shop, general information about downtown Paducah, helping to spruce up displays, keeping the art dust free and level. Special help with our events, including fundraisers, public programming, and workshops, by checking people in, bartending, serving at information points, set-up and break-down of activities, among a random assortment of tasks.
We believe in the power of accessible and inclusive art, so we work tirelessly to bring art into the community. We are looking for enthusiastic individuals that share in that vision and have an interest in helping us sustain visual arts in Paducah. The YAC Pack is full of art ambassadors – people that embrace the creative nature, understand the power of art and openly share that vision through their volunteer hours. You do not need formal studio training, a developed portfolio, or even to own a paintbrush or pencil in order be a part of the YAC Pack.
