Collaborative Gallery Efforts

Collaborative Gallery Efforts

Volunteers joined with the local TASCO Summer Student Program and Suncoast Hospice for a project to preserve volunteer history with the museum.

Volunteers are an integral part of the success of our Museum operations and programming. Over 225 active volunteers ranging in age from 16 to 90 contribute their time and talents in a variety of ways at the Museum. Students (high school and college) are also welcome to volunteer at The Dali for approved course credit or scholarship requirements.

Areas of opportunity include guest relations, education, membership, marketing, operations, evening and day-time special events, and more. Training is provided and volunteers receive special benefits for their service.

The Dali seeks volunteers from all backgrounds. A background in art is not required for most volunteer opportunities.

To get started, please submit the form below or sign up by mail, download and send our volunteer form (PDF). If you have any questions call 727.623.4731, email volunteer.office@thedali.org, or stop by the Volunteer Office at the Museum.

Volunteer Spotlight: Maura Casorio

 

Perseverance is essential in research but patience has its rewards: Seeing several iterations of hairstyle and color on the same staff member in photos taken years apart is in some cases comic relief for Maura and the five others who have worked on preserving a pictorial history of volunteerism at the Dali.

After 23 years as a project manager in IT, Maura is the perfect person to spearhead the project. Working from hundreds of pictures in boxes and albums, and a couple thousand on flash drives, the Volunteer Council Historian and her team are identifying activities and attendees photographed as long ago as 1988, aiming to provide digitized access that can be researched by event or by a person’s name on the Dali’s collection database.

As a docent for four years and a member of the council for 18 months, Maura expects to leave the project when her council term expires in January 2019. She is now designing the process to ensure that the project can continue once the backlog is archived and new pictures are taken at forthcoming events.

Maura is proud of the enormous amount of work that has been completed. The current photo preservation project has taken 300+ hours over the course of 1 1/2 years by five volunteers, mostly working in the library, but also at home. In the future, she thinks her successors will have to do a third of that because identifying people of the present day will be so much easier, and because the process – her process – should become automatic. Future volunteers will be able to keep this process up to date, allowing the museum to easier access and identify historic photos.
