The Art Complex Museum is very fortunate
to have sixty dedicated volunteers.
Several new and enthusiastic people
have joined our wonderful group. They
come from a variety of backgrounds
and, after their initial interview, they are
placed where they fit best and where
they will most enjoy helping.
Our volunteers often work in teams ó
when two people share the same
task, one can fill in when the other is
unavailable. The role of the volunteers
includes: greeting and assisting visitors;
serving as hostess at receptions;
concerts and tea ceremonies; assisting
with programs for children and adults;
helping to keep a portfolio of the
museumís news clippings; and using
their talents and skills to assist the
curators during a show change.
We provide our volunteers, staff
and guests the opportunity to meet our
exhibiting artists at our gallery talks/
coffee socials, which are held when a
new exhibit opens. These lectures are
very popular and help all of us appreciate
the artistís work.
Each spring and fall we take field
trips to area galleries and/ or museums.
We celebrate the many diverse
talents of our volunteers by inviting
them to attend our Artist-Drop-In
Studio Program, where writers, painters,
and a variety of creative handwork
enthusiasts come together to work in
an artistic atmosphere.
Recognizing volunteers is a vitally
important task. Recognition is a great
stimulator. Our way of rewarding our
volunteers for the service and time
they have given the museum is by having
an end-of-the- year event, a catered
luncheon. This catered luncheon is a
great way to say thanks, to talk about
the past year and to congratulate each
other for being part of a very special
year at The Art Complex Museum.
Our volunteers are part of our
organization. Their name tags identify
them as team members and we
welcome anyone who is interested in
joining us. Even if you have a busy
schedule, we can find a volunteer
opportunity for you.
