Cultural Center Seeking Volunteers

Trained volunteers, called Picture People, will have the opportunity to go into K-6 grade classrooms to share reproductions of pieces from Mia’s permanent collection. The program encourages creativity, critical thinking and global awareness through in-depth explorations of art across various cultures and time periods.

Art Adventure is an opportunity for students to experience art up close and personal through reproductions, technology and touch-and-feel props.

Volunteers will be needed for the months of February and March 2017, with a training date in Minneapolis or at the Center in January 2017.

This year’s theme is ““Artists’ Inspirations” which includes works from Georgia O’Keeffe, Pablo Picasso, and others.
