Attention all museum lovers, cultural enthusiasts, history buffs and devoted art advocates: Are you looking for a way to serve and inspire others in your community? The Utah Museum of Fine Arts is looking for passionate volunteers to serve as weekend docents!
The UMFA depends on a dedicated docent team each year to fulfill its mission and guide thousands of visitors through its halls. Docents will have the opportunity to delve deep into art history and the UMFA’s exhibitions, gain valuable communication skills, and earn rewarding community service experience.
Weekend docent training classes for 2012 will consist of six 90-minute meetings held on Saturdays beginning March 10. If you are eager to become a UMFA docent, please contact the Volunteer Coordinator, Amy Edwards, at (801) 585-9875 to request an interview. Visit umfa.utah.edu for applications and more information. Applications are due March 3, 2012.
