Adult Program Docents
Docents give regularly scheduled tours every day. Tours are designed to introduce visitors to the museum experience and explore different parts of the Gallery’s permanent collection of American and European art in engaging and thought-provoking ways.
Recruitment for a new class of adult program docents will begin in fall 2017. A two-year training program will begin in September 2018 and will focus on museum education and art history related to the permanent collection. Workshops, in-gallery sessions, lectures, and readings will be used to advance docent learning. Docents become part of a community of learners and continue their education beyond the initial two-year training period, both formally and informally.
For those interested in applying to the program, mandatory information meetings will be held in fall 2017. The schedule for these information meetings will be available here on August 15, 2017.
At this time we are not accepting applications for the school docent program.
