First off, for those of you that attended yesterday’s field trip, I truly hope you enjoyed it. If you were unable to attend and have yet to see the NIHON/WA exhibition
, please check it out before it leaves on July 28th
. The permanent exhibition is truly excellent as well; I plan on returning to the museum for a quick visit to get a better understanding of it.
We announced unofficially to those attending yesterday’s field trip that Kara Bonavia has accepted the Public Programs Manager & Volunteer Coordinator position! I’m sure you will be hearing from her at a later date about her transition into this position. For now, please know that I am continuing on as the Interim Volunteer Coordinator while Kara begins planning this Fall’s public programs and adjusts to her new role!
As you noticed, today we did not have a docent lecture. We’ve decided that we will not
be holding any docent lectures or trainings throughout the beginning of July. So many of you, and some of us, will be out of town during that time, that we decided to give you a few weeks off. Please plan on meeting Wednesday, July 31st
for a lecture with Margaret Bullock about both Sitting for History: Exploring Self-Identity Through Portraiture
and Austere Beauty: The Watercolors and Prints of Z. Vanessa Helder
. For a more comprehensive understanding of Z. Vanessa Helder, we will be inviting you to the public lecture being held by Margaret Bullock and David Martin in August.
As always, please let me know if you’ll be unable to work one of your shifts or if you would like to pick up a different shift.
