The Minnesota Marine Art Museum (MMAM) is currently recruiting new volunteers to serve in the role of “Museum Greeter.” Greeters serve as ambassadors to the Museum and are asked to commit to work at least one two-hour shift per month where they will help welcome visitors in Museum galleries and maintain the safety of artworks.
The Museum is hoping to add many new volunteer greeters to their friendly volunteer corps in order to accommodate the growing number of people who visit, and in preparation for the MMAM’s gallery expansion to open this fall.
Interested persons should call the Museum’s front desk at (507) 474-6626 and sign up to attend one of the three orientation sessions that will be offered throughout the summer. The training sessions will be held on Saturday, June 8th from 11:00 am- 12:30 pm; Wednesday, July 24th from 3:00-4:30 pm; and Saturday, August 10th from 11 am- 12:30 pm.
The Minnesota Marine Art Museum is a nonprofit art museum and education center awarded with Visit Winona’s Tourism Award in 2012. The MMAM is supported by over 1,000 members, donors, granters and sponsors from across the greater region. It is located at 800 Riverview Drive, surrounded by gardens on the Mississippi River in Winona. Gallery and Store hours are Tuesday through Sunday, 10am – 5pm.
