First Friday Gallery Walk / Opening Receptions
Do you like to attend our art openings? We can use help with setting up, hosting, and cleaning up. This is a fun opportunity to meet the artists, introduce people to the museum and help keep the staff available to greet guests. First Friday Gallery Walk hours: 5:00-9:00 pm. Openings are typically on Thursdays from 4-6:00 pm. Please call to learn about reception dates if you are interested.

Installations
Responsibilities include; All aspects of gallery preparation, i.e. packing work, patching and painting walls, moving walls, and hanging work. This is an active, hands-on opportunity. If you are interested in installations, please let the volunteer coordinator know! Work is usually done during regular museum hours with occasional evenings and weekends – the amount of time you donate is up to you.

Special Events
FCMOA hosts special events and fundraisers that are staffed almost entirely by volunteers. To join this energetic and fun crew, please call the museum to find out what’s on the schedule at this time!

FAQ

I am an artist. Can I submit my portfolio?

Thank you for your interest in exhibitions at FCMOA. If you would like the curatorial staff to learn more about your work, please feel free to send written materials and reproductions or submit your materials online to info@moafc.org. We would need to see a resume, statement, cover letter and biography as well as images (in digital format). We cannot accept original works of art. Due to the volume of correspondence we receive, we may not able to respond directly to each and every submission and we cannot assume responsibility for or guarantee the return of any materials that are submitted.

Materials may be sent to: Curatorial Department, Fort Collins Museum of Art, 201 S. College Dr., Fort Collins, CO 80524

I found a painting in my grandmother’s house. Is it real? What’s it worth? 

The museum does not perform identifications, authentications, or valuations. You can find a certified appraiser at www.appraisers.org. An auction resource like Christie’s or Sotheby’s, or even an online auction site like eBay, can help you learn more about the value of your object.

I have an artwork that needs to be cleaned. Who should I call?

The museum cannot endorse specific conservators. Excellent information on selecting a conservator is available on the American Institute for Conservation website at http://aic.stanford.edu/public/select.html.

Where can I learn more about a specific artist or type of art? 

You can research artists and art in many different ways. Start your search online at a site likewww.artcyclopedia.com or www.askart.com. You should also search your local library; librarians are great at getting hard-to-find information, so be sure to ask!
