CEDAR CITY, Utah – July 30, 2019 – On Saturday, August 10 from 9:30-11:00 a.m., Southern Utah Museum of Art (SUMA), on the campus of Southern Utah University (SUU), will host a volunteer recruitment event in an effort to find new and engaging volunteers.
In anticipation of a new academic year, SUMA is looking for committed, fun volunteers to guide visitors and students of all ages on tours of the museum. People interested in becoming a volunteer are invited to stop by SUMA during the Fall Volunteer Recruitment event to learn more about the volunteer program. Guests will have the opportunity to meet and mingle with SUMA’s current volunteers, and a formal presentation about the museum and volunteer opportunities will follow.
A background in visual art is not required, only enthusiasm for learning and sharing knowledge with others. As new docents, volunteers will learn about the museum’s history, special exhibitions, permanent collection, and touring/classroom techniques.
Current volunteer opportunities include assisting with various events and activities, leading K-12 tours and interacting with walk-in guests. Those interested in SUMA’s volunteer program can contact Tanner Vario, tour and volunteer coordinator, at firstname.lastname@example.org or (435) 586-5432.
