We are looking for volunteers to fill shifts at the information booths, support the Art-A-Whirl Art Silent Auction fundraiser, ride along with the trolley as a Guide, and more! A variety of shifts are open leading up to the event in April and throughout the weekend of Art-A-Whirl (May 20-22, 2016). Please join us for this fun opportunity to support Art-A-Whirl!View position descriptions, information, open shifts, and sign up here!

 Orientation Sessions Art-A-Whirl volunteers must attend one volunteer orientation (except for those solely volunteering for Silent Auction Installation shifts, the Preview Party, or Directory or Signage Distribution). Volunteers will receive a free Art-A-Whirl t-shirt at the orientation, and light snacks and beverages will be provided. Expect orientation to last one hour. Orientation dates:
  • Wednesday, May 11, 5:30-6:30 PM
