Volunteer Opportunities at Southern Exposure's Art Auction

user 7875444
San Francisco, CA
Our friends at Southern Exposure, a non-profit that supports visual artists, are having an art auction this Saturday. If you want exposure to the San Francisco art scene and you're available Saturday or Sunday, consider attending or volunteering at their art auction.

Volunteer Opportunities at Southern Exposure's Art Auction

The auction is Southern Exposure's biggest event of the year, and it provides direct and critical support for our programs, enabling us to continue supporting artists every day!

We need a lot of hands to help pull off such a huge effort, but we will do our best to make sure you have a great time while you are here! This is a ticketed event, but volunteers enjoy the festivities (including delicious food and drink) for free! More info on the event here:­

We still need a lot of help. If you are interested and available to help out, please contact Morgan at 415-863-2141 or Let us know what responsibilities interest you most and which of the time slots work best for you!

SATURDAY 3/23/13

Front Door Checkin, Door Bouncers, and Crowd Control
9:30 - 11 PM
Help us keep things smooth at the front door and make sure our guests are treated like royalty. Work that velvet rope and play bouncer to anybody who tries to sneak in. No big muscles required!

Food Prep
6 - 9 PM
8 - 12 PM
We have gotten a ton of amazing donations from local restaurants and businesses to help keep our guests full and happy! You will work in our makeshift office/kitchen to help with plating and presentation and keeping a steady stream of full plates headed out to the event.

8:30 - Midnight
Serve beer wine and cocktails to keep the mood up and the bids high! 21 plus for this job.

Gallery Maintenance
6 - 8:30 PM
8:30 - Midnight
You are on hand to make sure everything looks great all night long, assisting the food runners in keeping the tables well stocked and presentable, and checking up on all areas of the event to keep everything neat and clean. Volunteers in this position may also be asked to fill in for other jobs that may need more help

Art Handlers
8-11 PM
Consider yourself Vanna White. You will don white gloves and parade the artwork on stage to be sold to the highest bidder. After the live auciton ends, you will help manage the sale of the silent auction artwork and make sure nobody leaves empty handed!

Art Wrappers
8:30 - 11 PM
You'll work behind the scenes to make sure that all the artwork is bundled up and well protected before it heads out!

SUNDAY 3/24/13 (The Day After)

11 - 4 PM
Auction Strike and Clean-up
The party is over but the mess tends to overstay its welcome. Any volunteer who helps out with cleanup is probably eligible for sainthood, or at least our undying gratitude.
