Call for Volunteers

Looking for a good way to use your talents in service of your community? You might consider volunteering for the Visual Arts Board.

The American Fork Visual Arts Board states, "It is our mission to inspire, enliven, and enhance our community through exposure to the visual arts." Organized in 1948 by a small group of local artists dedicated to this cause, the Visual Arts Board became an umbrella group of the American Fork Arts Council in 1991. Through the dedication of past and present board members, the Visual Arts Board continues the tradition of sponsoring both the Steel Days Art Show and the Edna Birk Memorial Scholarship, a scholarship of $500 given annually to an outstanding student of the visual arts. Grant money from the Utah Arts Council and funding from American Fork City also enable the Board to sponsor classes for children, teens, and adults in various art media.

The Visual Arts Board is now -- and always -- seeking volunteers. Volunteers can serve in a variety of ways, filling one-time or on-going slots such as show director or co-director, reception coordinator, host or hostess, publicity director, data entry specialist, or board member.

To learn more, please call the Arts Council at 801-763-3081.
