Volunteer Mix & Mingle | March 7
Join us for Good Vibrations!, a mix & mingle to learn about volunteer opportunities at The Arts Commission in 2017. The Original Sub Shop will be our host, providing a cozy atmosphere, great food and live music. We'll have information on our upcoming events such at the Art Loop and The Mix. This is a great chance to get to know some pretty great Toledoans. Hope to see you there! Have questions? Contact Event & Volunteer Coordinator, Natalie Tranelli-Jacobs at email@example.com.

This month we celebrate Jason Sanderson in our volunteer spotlight! Jason is a 20 year veteran of the Bedford High School Art Department and director of the FOCUS high school art exhibition for the last five years. Jason has mentored dozens of young artists over the years, empowering his students with extraordinary art experience in and out of school, including a year-round life drawing group and the opportunity to work in a professional art studio. In 2013 his alma-mater of Siena Heights presented him with The Honorary Alumni Award for his exceptional commitment to community. “I love that art and culture in Toledo is so diverse. No matter the age, interest, or skill level, everyone has a place in it. I also love the fact that it is growing before our eyes and has so much room to expand and reach more people. We have barely scratched the surface of what arts and culture can do!”
Jason has graciously donated his time, energy and talent with The Arts Commission through The Mix, Hot Glass and Art Loop. “I like to lead by example. I want to encourage my students to become part of the arts movement in Toledo and all it has to offer, and can't do it from a spectator's perspective. The Arts Commission has such a diverse offering of events and opportunities, that no two volunteer events are the same. I also know that artists and arts related businesses are best served by those who are willing to sing their praises. Being a part of the volunteer crew of the Arts Commission allows me to do this and more!”
Thank you for all you do, Jason!
