¤ The Steamboat Springs Arts Council is seeking new members to serve on their Visual Arts Committee. The VAC is an advisory committee composed of artists, educators and business members who have a passion for visual arts. They help plan and execute gallery exhibits and visual arts programs for SSAC. We would like to build a multi-generational committee to best represent the needs of our community. For more information or to get an application, email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 879-9008 x106.
¤ The Steamboat Springs Arts Council is seeking volunteers for their Docent Program. SSAC docents are trained volunteers who staff The Depot galleries, help interpret and explain our exhibits and encourage visitor interaction with the artwork, furthering the mission of the Steamboat Springs Arts Council. They help with unpacking exhibit items, hanging shows and hosting opening receptions. Docents also coordinate the annual Studio Tour and facilitate the "Art for Seniors" program at the Doak Walker Care Center. They are available to lead guided tours of the exhibits to schools and groups if requested. Docents meet monthly for seminars as well as occasional field trips. Docents continue their arts education by attending the monthly art seminars and gallery talks by presenting artists and exhibition judges, and participating in docent sponsored field trips. Docents are also encouraged to attend art education events and classes at CMC or presented to the community. For more information please contact email@example.com or call 879-9008 x106.
