OPEN CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS: Gallery Coordinator
Beyond our amazing theatrical facilities, The Majestic Theatre is lucky enough to house a beautiful gallery space and to be a mainstay of the Corvallis Art Walk. Artists have hosted solo shows, been a part of themed shows, and have contributed to show-specific shows over the last few years. We’ve managed to handle the coordination on our own for a while, but we need a little help.
