Volunteer For the Arts

 

Humboldt Arts Council welcomes volunteers. Our many volunteers are an integral part of the Morris Graves Museum of Art. Volunteering is a great way to meet new and interesting people, learn more about art, and support the Museum.

Reflections...

"I've met so many people who appreciate art and truly enjoy the experience as I do. I can't seem to get enough art. Each time I volunteer I'm enlightened to a new level of awareness."
- HAC Volunteer, Karan Collenberg

"The best thing about volunteering for the HAC is being exposed to artists and their creations, a thing that would never otherwise happen to me. I am enriched and touched even when I do not understand" 
- HAC Volunteer, Ellsworth Pence

"It's a great way to keep the arts in the 
community and a learning experience bar none!"
-HAC Volunteer, Pauline Huber
