Docent Class of 2019

New Docent Class forming at MAG

MAG’s Docents (a word derived from the Latin “to teach”) are an integral part of the museum’s mission: enhancing people’s lives by cultivating relationships and building community through the direct experience of art and creativity. Each year, our Docents lead thousands of schoolchildren on tours of the collection and exhibitions. A welcoming Docent voice is the first introduction to MAG for many visitors. This is your opportunity to volunteer at MAG!
Potential Docents must be able to:

  • attend training at MAG on Tuesdays from September 2018-June 2019
  • following training, make a three-year commitment to the program, including two mandatory orientations a month
  • give a minimum of 25 Docent tours a year

For more information contact Mary Ann Monley at mmonley@mag.rochester.edu or at 585.276.8974.

An informational meeting will be held at MAG on June 21st at 7:00 pm. Please RSVP to Mary Ann Monley (contact information above).
