Essay 1: Proposed Partnership
The Crocker is one of the main sources in the Sacramento area for the study and appreciation of fine art. The Museum offers art exhibitions, programs and events to showcase its collections of Californian, European, Asian, African and Oceanic artworks and international ceramics.

In turn for these services, Sacramento State an active member and donor for their Crocker Docent Council. The Crocker Council is a volunteer service group developed to support educational programs offered by the The Crocker Art Museum.

Sacramento State can spread awareness across campus and within the Arts and Letters college recruiting volunteers for this program.
