Our dedicated docents and volunteers are the backbone to almost all of our public programs; without them we couldn’t do all that we have been able to accomplish over the past 40 years as an institution. One of these fabulous volunteers is Ray Jan, a dynamic Angelena who finds time in her busy work and social life to support the museum both as a member and a volunteer. She joined the museum as a member in 2008 and became soon involved with the Chinese Arts Council by 2009. Since then, Ray has worked tirelessly in support of museum events especially our Fusion Fridays summer night series and our Lunar New Year Festival. For Ray, PAM is not just a museum, it is a little oasis in the midst of the hectic L.A. life. It is also a great place to socialize with like-minded urbanites, especially at the summer weekends night of Fusion Fridays. Most importantly, it is a place where cultural exchange and friendships are forged over a lifetime of volunteering.
