Docent Shifts Available: Mondays Summer Shift

Starting on Memorial Day which is Monday, May 29, Tacoma Art Museum will be open on Mondays until Labor Day. That means that there are four docent shifts available:

®    Monday Week B, 10 am – 2 pm starting May 29

®    Monday Week B, 1 – 5 pm starting May 29

®    Monday Week A, 10 am – 2 pm, starting June 5

®    Monday Week A, 1 – 5 pm starting June 5


If you are interested in taking on or switching to one of these shifts, please let me know!

Since we now have less docents than shifts, we could also change the Monday shift times to do more of a mid-day shift if you prefer that.


The summer exhibitions – Essence of Line: French Drawings from Ingres to Degas, Between Clouds of Memory: The Ceramic Art of Akio Takamori, and Roy Lichtenstein: American Indian Encounters – should be popular and busy, so it is important that docents are available for all shifts.


And we don’t expect you to be in the galleries, on your feet, for the entire four hours! Please feel free to take a break whenever and wherever you need it – in the ARC, the Untitled Café, the Museum Store, or outside the museum. Just let Visitor Services know where you are, and they will find you if someone requests a docent.

And I will always contact you if there is a tour or other event for which you are needed at a specific time. Otherwise, it is completely up to you to decide when you are most needed and how long you can manage in the galleries.


Thanks for your time!
