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.

To learn more about this incredible program visit this link new.artsmia.org/discover/art-adventure/ or email us at info@kulcher.org.

To volunteer, contact Cultural Center volunteer coordinator Pam Robinson at pam@kulcher.org, or call the Center at 218-385-3339.
