Minnesota Marine Art Museum seeks a sea of volunteers (02/12/2006)
The Minnesota Marine Art Museum of Winona, MN is hosting an Open House on Thursday March 2, 2006 from 6:30-7:30 p.m. for anyone interested in learning more about the Museum's volunteer program. The event will be held in the Hiawatha Room at 360 Vila Street on the Saint Teresa campus.

The Museum, scheduled to open in autumn, is actively seeking volunteers to serve in a variety of capacities including Docents (tour guides), Greeters, Receptions Committee, Administrative Help, Gift Shop and others. At the March 2 Open House, Museum staff will explain the different volunteer positions and provide background on the Museum and its collections. Light refreshments will be served.

Executive Director, Danielle Benden affirms, "Volunteers are the heart and soul of every museum.  We are committed to creating a volunteer group that is active, as volunteers will play a critical role in the success of the museum." Chairman of the Board, Bud Baechler, emphasizes that, "The Museum's volunteers will be in a key position to make a difference both at the Museum, and in the community. They will be the ambassadors, helping the Museum and its programs touch as many lives as possible."

The mission of the Minnesota Marine Art Museum is to enrich the human experience, enable the joy of discovery, and elevate the human spirit " all through the world of art. The Museum will open in 2006 with the Burrichter/Kierlin Marine Art Collection, on loan to the museum, featuring oil paintings that focus on the transition from sail to steam and 3-dimensional marine art objects; the Leo and Marilyn Smith Folk Art Collection inspired by the people and the natural environment of the Mississippi River Valley; and the Henry Bosse Photographs and Maps Collection. Bosse was acclaimed by the Getty Museum as being "one of America's photographers of genius." The 267 foot Dredge William A. Thompson will become an exhibit to the museum in 2007.

For more information about the Museum's volunteer program, the Open House, museum membership, or to receive materials about volunteer opportunities, please call the Museum at (507) 453-5550.
