Volunteer Opportunities

The San Angelo Museum of Fine Arts is very fortunate to have numerous volunteers who help in a variety of areas. Our volunteers are task oriented and in some cases, such as docents, must go through a process of training. We are particularly seeking volunteers in the following areas:

  • Event specific volunteers: Throughout the year the Art Museum host art activities and festivals that require the help of people who can supervise prepared hands-on art activities, serve refreshments, sell tickets and other similar tasks. We request that during such events volunteers commit to a minimum of two hours during a specific time frame.

  • Education Volunteers: The Museum Educator organizes and oversees a wide variety of programs and is seeking individuals who are highly committed and have specific skills in art, art instruction and art education.

  • Collections Volunteers: If working with objects and information is more your style, volunteering in Collections just might be for you! This includes researching and documenting our collections objects, and helping out with our changing exhibits. A background check may be required.

There are other areas, such as assisting in our library, where volunteers would be welcome. Any questions regarding volunteer positions, please feel free to contact the Museum Educator or the Collections Manager, at 325-653-3333. Or stop by our main office downstairs and pick up a volunteer application.

 Dr. Alicia Rozycki

Dr. Alicia Rozycki is a psychologist by trade, but has been drawn to art from a young age and had the opportunity to study art while in college at University of Maryland, College Park earning a Bachelor’s of Art in Art Studio. While a graduate student, she had the opportunity to teach a course entitled “Introduction to Psychology and the Arts” which explored such topics as creativity and mental illness, art therapy, and aesthetics. Again she was pulled toward incorporating art and creativity into her dissertation and studied the history of tattoos as an art form and focused specifically on prison tattoos. She has had the opportunity to volunteer as a docent at SAMFA previously and looks forward to re-engaging in this programming!

Alicia is currently concentrating on SAMFA’s Senior Care Outreach program.
