Guides Wanted for Library Art Exhibits

September 28th – The Queens Museum and Queens Library seeks Volunteer Exhibition Interpreters for ​Queens International 2018: Volumes, an exhibition featuring the work of artists living or working in Queens. The exhibition​ opens on November 10th at the Central, Flushing and LeFrak City community libraries.

Exhibition Interpreters are trained to serve as guides to art/exhibitions located within Queens Library branches. The purpose of a guide is to help give visitors a deeper understanding and appreciation of the artwork.

Tours are conducted every 30-60 minutes and structured to actively involve visitors in the experience, giving them the tools of visual literacy. Interpreters help the visitor attain some sort of “ownership” of the art, and enable them to include art in their own lives.

Applicants should be:

  • 17 years and older
  • Possess an interest in the arts and learning about the arts
  • An attitude of tolerance and respect for all people’s points of view
  • Language skills, in this case, in Mandarin, Bengali or Spanish can be especially helpful.
  • Available Thursday evenings OR Saturday afternoons.  Able to attend required training sessions.
