The Augusta Savage Museum and Mentoring Building, completed in May 2021, is a multipurpose building which will serve the community in arts, education, and after-school tutoring. Space inside includes a dance studio, classroom space for music and visual arts, a computer lab, and an interactive museum space showcasing the life and work of sculptor Augusta Savage as well as a rotating display of other artists. The building was constructed at the site of the former Dunbar High School library and to be an updated cultural and information resource space for the community.
Currently the City is working with community leaders to create programs for the building space. They are now looking for volunteer teachers and tutors to organize potential programs in the future.
Anyone interested can fill out this Volunteer Sign-Up Form.
City administration and partnering community leaders will look over submitted applications and reach out to accepted applicants in November 2021.
