With the reopening of the John L. Wehle Gallery, we are creating a Volunteer Docent Program to assist with answering questions and offering tours in the gallery. By definition a "Docent" is a museum volunteer who provides guided tours. The John L. Wehle Gallery is seeing Docents to greet visitors, provide engaging interpretation of the history and significance of the art & artifacts in the gallery collection, and offer tours. Interested individuals must have excellent communication skills, feel at ease giving presentations and working in front of a wide variety of individuals and groups, and be able to stand for periods of time.
Patricia Tice, Gallery Curator will be conducting an intitial 4 week training program for the core group of interested volunteers; addressing the various collections within the gallery. This training will be a combination of lecture, discussion, research and reading. At the completion o fthe training you will be assessed as to youir working knowledge of various objects and works of art in the collection and your comfortability in interacting with guests. Upon successful completion of the training program, you will be asked to schedule yourself on a regular basis as Gallery Docent.
