Get Involved

MOFAC’s mission is to present and preserve Florida’s history, heritage, and environment with art and to research, and document, Florida’s contemporary art tradition.

Museum volunteer opportunities

Why sit home alone when you can meet people and enjoy the lovely surroundings of our museum?  Spend one afternoon a week or a month serving as a museum docent, assisting with tours, or help with exhibit installations and artist receptions.  No art experience required.

Learn about museum opportunities by emailing Dale McDaniel at Ivan.McDaniel or by calling 863-784-7240.

Friends of MOFAC

Visitors are charged no entrance fee to the museum, and many interpretive programs are free and open to the public. While the SFSC budget supports MOFAC’s administrative expenses, private dollars and government grants fund the museum’s programs and exhibits. The museum’s success depends on the dedication and generosity of its many sponsors and donors.  Your help also helps to expand MOFAC’s reach beyond its walls into the larger community; through traveling exhibits and other art and cultural presentations.

With your support, MOFAC can continue its mission in being a leader among college art and cultural museums! 

Please consider joining the Friends of MOFAC!

SFSC MOFAC Docent Program

Do you have an admiration for the visual arts? Do you have an interest in Florida history, archaeology or art? Come join us for an enriching, educational experience as a docent for MOFAC.

What does a docent do?
The docent greets visitors and helps them to enjoy and benefit from looking at the art and exhibits. As a docent, you will provide an interesting, entertaining, and educational aspect to the viewing experience. Docents volunteer one hour, two hours, or more on a weekly basis during the regular museum hours.

Do I need to know about Florida history and art to be a docent?
No. As a MOFAC docent, you will have an opportunity to attend docent training workshops, read materials available in the museum, and learn about the exhibits. Monthly docent training workshops are planned during the lunch hour and will cover such topics as archaeology, the Highwaymen, art history topics and Florida history.

For more information, call Dale McDaniel at (863) 784-7240 or via e-mail, Ivan.McDaniel@southflorida.edu.

 Every great work of art has two faces, one toward its own time and one toward the future, toward eternity.
