Sheldon Museum of Art seeking student docents


Interested in talking about ideas and finding out more about museums and what they do? Become a student docent. Sheldon - one of the premier university art museums in the country - is looking for students from all ages and backgrounds to join a team of volunteer guides who are dedicated to creating informal, energetic conversations around the art in our galleries. You do not have to have to be an artist or art historian: all you have to be is curious, and Sheldon staff will teach you to do the rest.

The next training begins February 4 and will include information on the museum's landmark building and special exhibitions, conversations with its curators and staff, and practice giving effective tours to other students and student groups. The training consists of four weekly sessions on Friday afternoons from 3 to 4:30 p.m.; after completing training, new docents are expected to attend regular meetings and artist talks to stay current on the museum's exhibitions and programs. Join us to create a dialogue, become part of the Sheldon community, and discover a world-class art collection.
