New Opportunities in Cleveland Ohio

Featuring NEW or NEEDED Volunteer Opportunities:

Art Ambassador

Location: Main Campus
Hours: Midday - Wednesdays and Saturdays

Trained by Cleveland Clinic curators, Art Ambassadors give guided tours to further the public's understanding of an artwork and Cleveland Clinic's collection as a whole.

By directly experiencing visual art and talking about it, audiences can not only gain a deeper appreciation of contemporary art but they can find comfort – elevating the spirit and affirming life and hope. Art Ambassadors promote the core values of the institution: collaboration, quality, integrity, compassion and commitment by discussing highlights integral to Cleveland Clinic's dynamic environment.
