National Volunteer Week

Condition report drawing of a basket, by Stacey Downey-Sterrett

It’s National Volunteer Week, which seems like a good time to recognize the volunteers who help the Barrick with their muscles and brains, who wash the windows, who unwrap the sculptures, who seal the library books in plastic, who draw and catalog the ancient Mesoamerican artifacts (along with dozens of masks, retablos, paintings, beads, et cetera), and who were there with us when we were hanging and shifting the works in this Art for Art’s Sake show.

Without their help, the rest of us would probably still be trying to unscrew Ali Smith’s lovely but obdurate Half-Life from the planks of its vast, vast crate.
