Welcome to the official Volunteer Registration Site for Pacific Standard Time! We are excited that you are interested in volunteering and look forward to having you on our team as an ambassador for this initiative!
Pacific Standard Time: Art in L.A. 1945-1980 is an unprecedented collaboration of more than sixty cultural institutions across Southern California, coming together to tell the story of the birth of the L.A. art scene. Initiated through grants from the Getty Foundation, Pacific Standard Time will take place for six months beginning October 2011. Volunteers will act as the connectors, providing visitors with information on other exhibitions and venue locations that they can visit to continue their overall experience of Pacific Standard Time. As well, volunteers will be sent out prior to opening weekend to start creating a buzz about the many exhibitions and public programs that are part of Pacific Standard Time.
Your involvement as a volunteer is an essential part of the program that will help drive visitors to all of the participating institutions. You can volunteer at your favorite museum, close to your home, or try something new and go to a location that you've never been - it's all up to you! As you begin the registration process, you will see the many options in terms of shifts and locations available to meet your needs.
Volunteers will be equipped with Pacific Standard Time T-Shirts, training manuals and handouts to be sure that you are fully informed of all parts of the initiative. Through this website, you will have access to print your volunteer schedule, download the volunteer training handbook and receive email updates from our Volunteer Headquarters to be sure that you are kept up to date on any new information or changes.
Please download and read the Pacific Standard Time Volunteer Program Frequently Asked Questions as well as a copy of the Volunteer Handbook before signing up for your first shift. This document is available for download below the Register Now button to the right.
