Dona Ana Art Council’s Volunteer of the Month

Jan Hertzsch Volunteer

As with any non-profit organization we depend upon volunteers and the Doña Ana Arts Council has many opportunities for individuals or groups to contribute to our programs – from gallery receptions to ushers at the Rio Grande Theatre to the Renaissance ArtsFaire – we can always use your help.   The list below contains our volunteer programs.

With a paid staff of just four and a volunteer board of up to twenty-five, you may ask how the Arts Council can successfully fulfill our mission. The answer is volunteers, and we have numerous opportunities for volunteers at just about any commitment level.

If you are interested in volunteering for the Doña Ana Arts Council, please fill out the contact form at the bottom of the page. We thank you for your interest and couldn’t do what we do with you!

The Renaissance ArtsFaire  takes place on the first full weekend in November and is the single largest event put on by the Dona Ana Arts Council each year. Logistical assistance with set-up and take-down the day prior to and immediately after the Faire is one of our greatest needs.  We are also in need of volunteers for the Las Cruces Arts Fair (mid March) Please fill out the volunteer form at the bottom of this page to show your interest.

Children’s Programs
The Arts Council has a number of Children’s programs throughout the year including Missoula Children’s Theatre and the Kennedy Center Partners in Education programs featuring, the Santa Fe Opera Performance (April 13, 2015 @ 9:30am and 11:00am) and Scrap Arts Music (April 20, 2015 @ 9am and 11am),  for elementary student.  Ticket sellers/takers, program distributors, set-up or take-down help (or sometimes just to be an adult presence is all that is required) are all needed to make these programs run a bit more smoothly.

Rio Grande Theatre

Some of our events, such as the RGT’s Every Other Tuesday performances, need volunteers to pass out programs, stagehands, or usher folks to their seats after the lights go down (we provide the flashlights).


Don’t see anything that appeals to you yet?  How about helping us fundraise by calling a few friends or assisting with a bulk mailing?  We sometimes have ongoing projects such as taking surveys.  Or maybe you just want to get out of the house for a while and do some filing or answer the phones?  If you have some time on your hands we can help find a way to occupy you.  It’s a great fun atmosphere for creative folks.
