Volunteers provide an invaluable service to the Museum of Art, the university, and the community. Fulfilling a vital link between the Museum’s exhibitions and its visitors, volunteers present lively educational tours of current exhibitions to community and family groups. Volunteers also lend support to the Museum’s many public programs, including Art After Dark events, Family Arts Festival, lectures, symposia. Volunteer docents who would like to give tours are required to attend the exhibition training(s), shadow at least two tours for the exhibition, and fulfill a tour practicum for senior education staff members.
