TAM Docents: Updates and training materials

Hello Docents-

I wanted to let you know that a new job has opened for volunteers called Visitor Services Specialist. The VS Specialists will be working in the galleries so I will be opening up some of the docent trainings to them. Some of these folks may choose to become docents as positions open and the VS Specialist position will give them a pretty good idea about how tours travel throughout the gallery so it seems like a natural transition for those interested. Please let me know if you have any questions or concerns about any of this.


Below are a couple of links to Youtube videos featuring Deborah Butterfield. Remember that she will also be speaking live here at the museum on June 6th at 1 pm. Deborah Butterfield Docent Walkthrough Intro on Youtube Deborah Butterfield explains philosophy behind horses


Finally, I still need docents for the tours below and I can’t think of any more bad knock knock jokes!
