Volunteer Spotlight!

Kelsey Mackley

This month we celebrate Kelsey Mackley in our volunteer spotlight! Kelsey is at Bowling Green State University studying Visual Communication Technology with specializations in print and interactive media. She hopes to one day work for a media firm doing graphic design, print design, and social media optimization. Kelsey grew up on the south side of Toledo for the first 15 years of her life before moving with her family to Waterville. In 2017 Kelsey joined The Arts Commission team as a volunteer. "Volunteering with The Arts Commission allows me to use my passion for art to give back to the community where I grew up, while having fun at the same time!"

Kelsey has been a faithful volunteer of the Art Loop where she can be found working at our Information Stations educating guests on local hot spots and creative spaces, or as Street Crew canvassing the streets touting all Toledo has to offer. “Volunteering allows me show others that art is an extremely valuable and influential part of Toledo’s culture!"

Thank you for all you do, Kelsey!

Art Loop

Every 3rd Thursday | April-December

Art Loop volunteer positions are currently closed for this month. They will be available at the beginning of next month where you will be able to volunteer for the May-December Loop. The Loop is Toledo’s signature monthly arts experience. Loop guests are invited to explore the downtown creative community through self-guided tours of the art, artists, and spaces that inspire a vibrant Toledo. This is the perfect opportunity for those who love our city and want to canvas the streets touting all Toledo has to offer. New and seasoned volunteers are welcome!

Downtown Docent

Art Loop | Every 3rd Thursday | April -December

This position is for both new and seasoned volunteers who are very familiar with downtown Toledo. Downtown Docents team up with TARTA drivers to take to the road, welcoming guests aboard the bus and answering any questions folks might have about the event or our city. In order to have a well-trained team, we ask that interested volunteers sign up for two or more Loop events.
