"Thank you for the experience of acting as facilitator in the Kitchener-Waterloo Art Gallery during Pandora's Box. Most visitors were very curious and impressed with the works, how they related to each other, and the variety of mediums used. Many were also familiar with the high-profile female contemporary artists in the exhibition, and happy to see such an important show in Kitchener. I very much enjoyed my time in the Gallery and being surrounded by artists' work that I had studied at UW. The Gallery staff is lovely to work with as well. Thank you very much for this volunteer experience."
