BIG EXTRAVANGANZA:

"The Move, Part 2"

Volunteer shift: 12pm-6pm

Dates: Tuesday-Saturday every week, April 1-24

What: programmic support in main gallery and Studio 24 (Galeria's annex venue)

Details: Galería is making a change - specifically, some new walls and ceilings! In November 2012, in order to support the many programs and events the organization produces, we revamped our spaces to include archiving services and key hospitality areas. Now, it is time for phase two of the renovation process for the organization - and we're looking for a few good volunteers! Assist in the prep, paint, set-up, strip, decor, and execution of a new facelift. Some lifting may be required; refreshments provided. We are particularly looking for help Saturday, April 6, and Tuesday, April 23.

Need: 2-5 volunteers per day; please email if you can even only do a part of one shift!
