Volunteer Reception

Finally --- here are some photos from our annual Susan M. Horowitz Volunteer Reception, held this year on April 16 at UIMA Director Howard Collinson's lovely light-filled home in honor of longtime UIMA volunteer Marlene Stanford. We hope those of you who made it out had a great time, and we really appreciate all the work you do for us!!

In addition to numerous volunteer activities, including serving on the Members Council, Marlene coordinated The Museum Store and Coffee Bar for nearly 10 years and was instrumental in its transformation from an occasional operation to a beloved Museum staple. Under her guidance, the store opened as a permanent part of the Museum in the fall of 2001. In fall of 2003 it moved to the mezzanine overlooking the Iowa River where it remained until its closing in July of 2007.
These photos were taken by one of our newest volunteers, Natalia Salazar. Natalia is a UI photography student who has worked for The Daily Iowan and the City of Chicago, and she hopes to get into magazine photography in the future. We'll probably be using some of her photographs in our Fall 2008 UIMA Magazine. Thanks for your work, Natalia!

Whoops, yes, Fall 2008. I guess I got a bit ahead of myself! Thanks for the catch.
