TAM: IMPORTANT training date changes
I apologize in advance but this email is about a change to the docent training schedule. However, it is also about an exciting NEW training session.
Tim Ternes is the Director of Programming and Exhibitions for The Saint John’s Bible, and he has been involved in training the docents at all the other exhibition locations except for one (I forget which one). Because he will be in this area for other reasons, he is willing and able to come do docent training for us at Tacoma Art Museum!
The docent training on Tuesday, June 17 is new, and will replace the trainings on Monday, June 9 and Wednesday, June 11 (which are now cancelled).
I realize that this date and time may be problematic for some of you. Please let me know if you CANNOT attend. We will find ways to pass on all the information to you.
The details for the July 14 and 16 trainings (a walk-through of the exhibition) have also changed: Tim Ternes will lead the training on July 14 in the morning, and Margaret Bullock will lead the training on July 16 in the evening. Margaret will also do a walk-through of the Janet Cardiff exhibition on both dates.
Tues. June 17, 10:30 – 12:30
