VOLUNTEER SPOTLIGHT:
Jacqueline White

Jacqueline White is a senior studying drawing, painting, metalsmithing, and psychology at Edinboro University. Originally from Edinboro, she started volunteering with the Erie Art Museum three years ago for a Gallery Night. Recently, she helped install Sergei Isupov’s Hidden Messages, a remarkable ceramic sculpture exhibit that opened at the Museum on December 2nd.  As of late, Jacqueline has been working on large-scale pieces depicting clouds. “Seeing Sergei’s surrealist sculptures has been wonderful and motivating,” she said. She looks forward to volunteering more and remaining open to the different sources of culture Erie has to offer.
