Volunteer Spotlight: Ali Ford

For four years, Ali Ford has been a regular at Museum events, cheerfully greeting guests and improvising solutions with intelligence and grace. She helped with the entire process of Spring Show intake and jury day this year, keeping the entries organized while radiating calm and good cheer. She enjoys being involved with the art, artists, and activities at the Museum. In her words, “Volunteering allows me to not only see, but to experience the art.”

Erie Art Museum Volunteer

There are many ways to get involved at the Erie Art Museum, and volunteering is a great way to get connected. Volunteers help with everything from gardening to governance. Every day of the week you will find volunteers here dedicating their time to our common cause, and making new connections.

Volunteering enriches lives through the connections made with others.
