Sunday morning at the Crocker

Volunteer event for adults and children will focus on improving artistic environment

Artists need clean, well-lighted places to do their work as well as muses to inspire them. You can contribute to the artistic process and enjoy a good lunch with Harvard alumni by volunteering to work at the Crocker Art Museum this Sunday. The outing could also be a good opportunity for your children or grandchildren to rack up some community-service hours for school.

Club members and their families are invited to help spruce up the museum’s studio classroom areas from 10 a.m. to noon. The classrooms, which are used by thousands of schoolchildren and visitors each month, are an important part of what the Crocker offers to the community.  As a non-profit, the Crocker depends on volunteers and organizations to help bring positive experiences to the community and fulfill its mission.

After the cleanup, members can buy lunch at the Crocker cafeteria and mingle in the museum courtyard. If you would like to help, contact event coordinator Sadia Niazi by email. Her address is

The April volunteer effort is part of Harvard’s Global Month of Service 2015. Clubs around the world will look for ways to make a difference in their local communities while strengthening their connections to Harvard and to area alumni.
