My favorite part of interacting with visitors is seeing how eager they are to share their previous experiences at art museums and the reasons why they are at the Phillips. Seeing how excited first time visitors are to stand in front of Renoir’s Luncheon of the Boating Party enhances my volunteer experience. Volunteering at the Phillips is a wonderful opportunity to surround myself with art lovers.
In this series, Education Specialist Emily Bray profiles volunteers within the museum. Our volunteers offer a wealth of expertise and experience to the museum, and we are delighted to highlight several them.
What do you see as the most valuable aspect of your volunteering?
CC:I started volunteering at the Phillips because I wanted to learn more about the museum and just learn something about art. I savor my education at the Phillips in both areas.
