TAM Docents: Updates
So much happens in one week! I hope that you are all doing well. I wanted to let you know the various happenings that affect your ability to do your job as docents. Below is an update from Zoe regarding jewelry pieces that have been swapped out in Speaking Parts. Attached are checklists for the Impressionism exhibition and Joe Feddersen (updated). I have made copies of the checklists and they will be available at the docent desk. Remember that this Sunday, September 20 is the lecture by Joe Feddersen at MOG and you will get in free if you tell the front desk that you are TAM Docents. Finally, for those of you who are members of Tacoma Art Museum and want to see lots of Joe Feddersen:

We have switched out a work in one of the jewelry cases in Speaking Parts. The Calder loan has ended and that work has been replaced with the following:
2. Mary Lee Hu

It’s on the top deck of the case.
Just let me know if you have any questions.
