“I love Chicago! I love her architecture! And I love to share what I know with visitors. As a volunteer we’re invited on special tours to expand our knowledge and to get to know other volunteers.”

—Beth Najberg, Volunteer Exhibit Host

Exhibit hosts provide guests with an engaging overview of the CAC's offerings, as well as specific information about current exhibitions. Volunteers serve in shifts and help orient guests as they explore all the CAC's exhibits.

What is expected of an Exhibit Host?

  • Familiarize yourself with the priorities of visiting individuals or groups.
  • Be available to highlight specific exhibition components and answer questions.
  • Share exhibition themes, stories and components to engage visitors.
  • Help guests interpret current exhibits through mini-tours.
