URGENT: Docent Needed: Saturday, August 12
Can anyone do a docent shift (or trade a shift) anytime on Saturday, August 12?
There is no other docent scheduled on this day, and it is Chihuly Week so there will be special activities at the museum, and all around downtown, and we think it will be busy!
This shift does include tours at 11 am and 1 pm, as advertised.
CHIHULY WEEKEND EVENTS:
· Hilltop Artists in Residence – Glass created by students in the Hilltop Artist-in-Residence program will be on view in the Tacoma Art Museum atrium for the month of August.
· August 8-13 – Ma Chihuly’s Floats video in the Murray Family Event Space. Times will vary.
· August 12-13 – Chihuly Weekend Activities, 12 – 5 pm:
o Chalk artist Brian Major will beautify the Tacoma Art Museum plaza with an original chalk art masterpiece. Other chalk art by local artists and students will be created on the Bridge of Glass and along Pacific Avenue.
o Magician and balloonist Magic Mike will create Chihuly-inspired balloon sculptures on the Tacoma Art Museum plaza.
o Experiment with plastics that can be molded and shaped using hot water. On the upstairs balcony, visitors can work with molding plastic and markers to create their own wearable art inspired by Chihuly’s Sea Form shapes.
It is important that we try to have docents available for all shifts.
Please reply only if you are available, and I will confirm whether or not you are needed.
Thanks for your time!
