Volunteers are an integral part of the success of our Museum operations and programming. Over 225 active volunteers ranging in age from 16 to 90 contribute their time and talents in a variety of ways at the Museum. Students (high school and college) are also welcome to volunteer at The Dali for approved course credit or scholarship requirements.
Areas of opportunity include guest relations, education, membership, marketing, operations, evening and day-time special events, and more. Training is provided and volunteers receive special benefits for their service.
The Dali seeks volunteers from all backgrounds. A background in art is not required for most volunteer opportunities.

Volunteer Spotlight: Ira Piller
Ira Piller volunteers in the Museum’s library, having logged hundreds of hours overs three years working alongside Librarian Shaina Harkness. His work requires meticulous attention to detail as he extracts and records information from original sources to help establish provenance for The Dali Museum’s collection. The work entails extracting information from hundreds of letters about the value, exhibition, press coverage and transfer of Dali’s art; organizing files of transparencies and photographs; and cataloging ephemera such as lecture announcements, invitations to gallery shows, press clippings and flyers from across the world. Ira enjoys “making a small contribution to the history of the Museum.” He and his wife, Denice, live in Clearwater, FL and are the parents of Samantha, a fashion industry buyer. Thank you, Ira!
