Volunteers in Art (VIA)

Over 200 volunteers strong, the Volunteers in Art (VIA) supports the functions of the Nevada Museum of Art through a variety of activities. From staffing the Shop and public programs to installation support and administrative assistance, volunteers provide over 8,000 hours of service each year. The annual Arts and Flowers Luncheon, entirely planned and organized by VIA, is a fundraising event to underwrite volunteer services as well as exhibitions and educational programming.

The VIA Council meets regularly to attend to the governing business of the volunteers.
