Our Volunteers Are All-Stars

This week is National Volunteer Week — one of those dates on the calendar, like Mother’s Day, that reminds us to thank the people we’re thankful for all year long.

The Art League was an all-volunteer organization for decades, and as a 501(c)(3) nonprofit, still depends on thousands of volunteer hours to keep it running. From receiving and hanging exhibits each month, to serving on the board of directors, to teaching lessons at SOHO, to helping at events like Patrons’ Show and Artfête, volunteers are behind the scenes of everything that makes The Art League great.

So this week, we’re spotlighting just a few of these MVPs to say to all of our amazing volunteers:

Thank You

The volunteers below are only some of volunteers we saw around The Art League in just one week — there are many more who donate their time to keep things running. If you want to join this stellar group and help with fundraising, outreach, or anything else we do, click here to get involved.

For this installment of “Art Bites,” we look into the diptych of America Remembers/The Lives by Hernán Murno in the July open exhibit. Murno’s strong, graphic lines are reminiscent of early American Abstraction art of the 1940s. American Abstractionist work rose from a time of political unrest in response to WWII, and looking at Murno’s piece, you have the feeling that the aesthetic choice was not only inspired by the abstract movement but also reflective of today’s unique political tensions.
