Call for Volunteer Members: Arts and Cultural Installations Advisory Board


United Way of Mat-Su will convene an advisory board to assist in the procurement of art pieces to be installed near or on public right-of-way locations around the City of Palmer. We are seeking community-minded individuals with a passion for art, a love for the Mat-Su, and an active interest in improving our community. A history of active community engagement, particularly with the arts, is preferred.


The ideal candidate for the Advisory Board will bring with them a knowledge of the aesthetics, history, culture and geography of Palmer.  Board members should be willing and able to commit 10-12 hours per month toward board activities, particularly during the initial phases of this project.


Board members will review initial proposals by local artists, narrowing their selection for finalists. Finalists will move on to further review. Advisory Board members should anticipate meeting biweekly during the RFP review period, with meeting schedules adjustable to reflect workload. Meetings may be conducted virtually. Knowledge of virtual platforms such as Zoom and conference calling will be helpful.
