Over the course of his career as a general contractor, Jon L. Curry has established himself as an innovative professional in Sonoma, California. Outside of his professional activities, Jon L. Curry serves on the board of the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art.
Founded in 1998 to promote the creation and exhibition of fine arts in Sonoma Valley, the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art (SVMA) has since welcomed more than 130,000 visitors. Volunteers have played an integral role in the growth and development of SVMA, which now includes a membership of more than 1,000 households.
Many volunteers at SVMA choose to serve as museum guides, engaging visitors and teaching them about the art and ideas in various exhibits. Museum guides must complete a special training program, at which time they begin their two-year commitment at the museum. Exhibiting artists often meet with museum guides to help them answer questions from visitors.
Other volunteer opportunities at SVMA include front desk hosts, photographers and videographers, and administrative volunteers. To learn more about the Sonoma Valley Museum of Art, visit the official website at svma.org.
