There is a lot going on right now at the Museum of Northern california Art (MONCA) in Chico. Located in the historic Veteran's Memorial Hall building at 900 The Esplanade, MONCA's mission is to make art accessible and to promote awareness of North State artists through collections, exhibitions and educational programs.
The current exhibit at the non-profit museum is called "What, Us Worry?" with a fun, colorful sculpture exhibition featuring the works of Tony Natsoulas, Paul DiPasqua, and Michael Stevens. Natsoulas will be on hand to talk about his work the evening of Thursday March 8t,h for the showing of a documentary about him.
Meanwhile, MONCA is recruiting new volunteers. There are positions available in many areas, including the "Driving Docent" program, where volunteers bring original art and activities to schools and senior centers. They also help with school field trips to the museum. Researchers are needed to look for background information for events and projects, and search for sources of grant money. And Docents are also needed to meet and greet visitors at exhibits and events, and help with set up and tear down.
