The Armory Center for the Arts is a nonprofit, community-based organization that exists in large part because of the generosity of our members, sponsors, and volunteers. Thanks to you, we are able to live up to our mission to provide a creative exchange of ideas in art through community-based programs, education and exhibition for art students. If you would like to get involved with contemporary art, there are many ways in which you can express your support: 

Donate On-Line
The best way to show your support is to make a tax-deductible contribution. To do so, please fill out our online donation form.


Our volunteers are among our most valuable resources. Volunteering provides a rewarding opportunity to share your passion for the arts with others. Volunteers are needed throughout the year for various projects, so it's never too late to participate!

Adult Volunteers: If you would like to volunteer, please fill out a volunteer application form. After submitting your form, our volunteer coordinator will contact you to discuss your schedule and our volunteer opportunities.

Teen Volunteers: If you are under 18 and looking for a Summer volunteer opportunity, please come in to the Armory to pick up a student volunteer packet from our Studio Department in the front office. We cannot accept on-line applications for Summer Studio teen volunteers.

The Memorial Scholarship funds the cost of a letterpress class for a student in need each semester. Students up to 25 years old who demonstrate a strong creative interest in letterpress are eligible for the scholarship.
