Volunteer Docents and Curatorial Committee Members
Share Your Passion for Art with the Community
With the grand opening of the Village Theatre Art Gallery on November 14, 2009, the Town of Danville Recreation Services Department is seeking volunteers to be docents and curatorial committee members.
Are you interested in sharing your passion and knowledge of art with the community? Are you looking for a volunteer opportunity that will make a difference? If you answered yes to one of these questions, then the Town of Danville Recreation Services Department is the place for you.
Currently we have two volunteer opportunities. As a docent for the Village Theatre Art Gallery you will lead, teach and inspire our community to appreciate fine art. You will also have the opportunity to learn about different works of arts, artists, historical periods and cultures. No experience is necessary. Training will be provided and flexible shifts are available. Docents provide an essential link between the exhibit and the visitor. Docents are at the heart of the museum experience! For more information contact Jane Laris at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 925-314-3465
In addition to docents we are also seeking individuals who are interested in serving on the Curatorial Committee for the new art gallery. As a member of this committee you will work with other members to identify, review and select exhibits for the gallery. The Curatorial Committee will meet monthly to provide guidance and direction of the new gallery. Individuals with a professional background in the visual / cultural art, arts education, municipal cultural arts programs and / or gallery, museum or curatorial experience are encouraged to apply. To print out an application, visit our website, www.ci.danville.ca.us. Applications are due by Tuesday, December 1, 2009 by 5pm and selections will be made by mid-December.
"With the opening of the Village Theatre Art Gallery this is a unique time for the town. As a docent or curatorial committee member you will be sharing in this excitement and helping others develop an appreciation for art," states Michelle Lacy, Recreation Services Manager.
