The Midwest Museum of American Art is in need of docents.
Docents are volunteers who provide important contact with the public through guided tours of the museum's Permanent Collection and temporary exhibits. Docents also provide informal discussions with museum visitors during the weekend hours of operations especially on Free Family Sundays throughout the year. Docents are highly appreciated for their dedication and in special instances may be called upon to perform other duties and provide administrative support to the Museum Staff.
No art background is required and training is provided. Curiosity is an important Docent trait. We encourage your interest to learn and your enthusiasm to share information with the public. Please contact the museum for any additional information, our phone number is 574-293-6660.
