Membership in the Averell Council will put you in touch with hundreds of young adults who share an enthusiasm for Rochester and the arts, and a commitment to support a wide range of cultural events.
(One hour informational meeting with group networking at Tapas following.) Through association with the Memorial Art Gallery, members will have the opportunity to invent, plan, sponsor, or just enjoy unique art-oriented events. Best of all, ideas for the events come from the members, and member volunteers make those ideas happen.
To energize a younger audience (21-40) to become participants in the present and future of the Memorial Art Gallery.
There is a multitude of ways to get involved with the Averell Council. Here are 5:
Learn and help others learn about art. Develop art and education programs such as our lecture series featuring nationally renowned artists, critics and collectors.
Sharpen your communication skills. Promote the Averell Council and its events: concerts, scavenger hunts, networking events.
Keep us growing. Help develop ideas to attract new Averell Council members, and keep current members happy and involved with the Gallery.
Build support for the Averell Council. Reach out to the Rochester business community, fundraising in support of Averell Council programs and events.
Keep us hopping. Develop new, fresh and different events to appeal to a broad range of Averell Council members.
Meet new friends and join us at whatever level you choose. Attend and enjoy, give a few hours of your time, or become an active volunteer.
