Spring Work Weekend

May 25 – 26, 2019

Come together as a museum community for a common cause. Work weekends are a great time to be part of a productive environment, and to cultivate new friendships. No special skills are required. Any donation of your time is appreciated, whether an hour or two, an afternoon, or as much time as you can spare.

Please bring your own work gloves and favorite tools.
