THELMA Volunteers may sign up, select shifts online

Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts (THELMA) announced today that volunteers may now sign up to volunteer at THELMA online. 

THELMA is looking to expand its volunteer program and now offers shifts including front desk attendant, art docent, ticket scanner, and event setup. Volunteers may complete an application, update their profile, sign up for shifts, and track their own volunteer hours online.  

“As a non-profit with over 200 events a year, a box office that is open regularly, and two levels of art exhibits, volunteers are key to THELMA’s success,” said Kevin Miller, THELMA executive director. “THELMA is not only an important asset to the downtown and Fond du Lac area, but also a fun and exciting environment that is always changing making it a great place to be.”

Philip Shepherd, a downtown attorney, is serving in a volunteer capacity as THELMA’s volunteer coordinator. William Zierdt, retired from Marian University, and Grant Grinstead, of Vir Clar Farms, serve on the THELMA Board of Directors and are co-chairs of THELMA’s Volunteer Committee.

“Volunteers give their valuable time to THELMA, so the process of signing up as a volunteer and selecting the time you can give needs to be simple,” Shepherd said. 

The software also allows THELMA to track how many volunteer hours are provided to the organization. To sign up, click here.

THELMA is located at 51 Sheboygan St., in the heart of Downtown Fond du Lac’s Arts and Entertainment District. THELMA is a privately-funded non-profit dedicated to providing experiences not readily available in the area. Intimate concerts in the Great Hall, street concerts with major performers, indoor films, and art from world-renowned artists are available at THELMA. The Contemporary Wing has free admission and is open to all. THELMA also offers a stunning backdrop for weddings, meetings and all social and corporate gatherings.

Wisconsin native and art from Cheetos exhibiting at THELMA

Two new solo exhibits by New York-based artists Scott Zieher and Mike Womack are open at Thelma Sadoff Center for the Arts (THELMA).

Womack’s exhibit, Roadcut, refers to a segment of a hill or mountain where rock and soil have been vertically cut out to make way for a road. He sculpted a vertical cut out of the snack-food Cheetos. 

Alongside the Cheetos sculpture is altered 17th, 18th, and 19th century engravings of architectural structures. Womack shows the high cultured tradition of architecture and modernism as it lies alternatingly upon the low culture material of processed convenient store fare. Each stratum mixes with the other and confused the class distinction between form, material, image, and object.

Born in Waukesha, Scott Zieher has written and published poetry since the early 1980s. Since then he has also kept sketchbooks and made drawings in abundance. 

Zieher has lived and worked in New York City since 1992, traveling often and always writing, sketching and making collages. He has created a constant sketchbook containing subjects and referents to family life as much as his day job as a contemporary art gallery owner in Manhattan's Chelsea district.

Co-owner of Zieher Smith Gallery in New York, named just this month by the New York Times as one of the top 10 galleries to visit in Chelsea.

Womack and Zieher, along with Shane McAdams, fellow artist and Marian University adjunct instructor are traveling across Wisconsin in a U-Haul gathering art, artifacts and evidence. They hope to collect a "visual core sample" of art in the middle, between the high and low culture of America.

You can follow along their journey through THELMA’s Facebook page. 

THELMA’s Contemporary Wing is free to the public, thanks to the generosity of Horicon Bank. Horicon Bank has a tradition steeped in art and shares the belief that art should be accessible to all. The gallery is open from 10 am to 5 pm Monday through Saturday and until 8 pm Thursdays. Check THELMA’s website for any changes in the hours due to private events.

THELMA is located at 51 Sheboygan St., in the heart of Downtown Fond du Lac’s Arts and Entertainment District.
