Volunteers are an integral part of ArtWorks. Guided by our full-time staff, volunteers provide invaluable support to ArtWorks through mural tours, event help, committees, administrative tasks, project cleanup, and more! You don’t have to be an artist. We will work with your time, talents, and interests and find a place for you. As an ArtWorks volunteer, you will gain a network of friends and creatives, experience firsthand the ArtWorks creative process, gain access to ArtWorks events, and so much more. If there is anything we can do to make your experience as a volunteer more fulfilling, we’d love to hear about it.

For questions and descriptions on opportunities please review the Volunteer Handbook.

Volunteer Opportunities

Mural Tour Guide

From May through October, ArtWorks offers public walking tours of our murals located in the downtown, Over-the-Rhine, and Pendleton neighborhoods. Additionally, private groups book tours year-round for corporate outings, school field trips, and other events.

Event Support

ArtWorks hosts a number of events throughout the year related to our fundraising and programming activities.


ArtWorks relies on committees made up of members of the community to help us plan our annual primary fundraising events.


The ArtWorks Advancement team occasionally needs the support of volunteers to complete mailings and filing to help achieve its fundraising goals.

Project Cleanup

In our mission to create community-based public art that provides career opportunities for artists of all ages, we make our canvas on forgotten city walls. Sometimes these walls need a little TLC before they are ready to become a work of art. Volunteers can help us clean up the area around the project space to prepare it for our Youth Apprentices to come to work.
