Docent Training tomorrow

Hello Docents,


I look forward to seeing you all at docent training tomorrow, Wednesday, March 4th at 11:00am in the Murray Event Space. (Reminder: there is no business meeting at 10:30). Margaret Bullock will share her insights on the new Eloquent Objects: Georgia O’Keeffe and Still-Life Art exhibition and give us a gallery tour.


We’re receiving loads of interest in group tours, so I hope you are ready to learn and sign up for tours! The exhibition is stunning, and we also feature a still-life exhibition from our northwest collection in the Russell Gallery. I’m attaching an informational graphic about the exhibition, which will give you some quick talking points, should you need them.


And, I’m delighted to announce that Britt Board is now on staff as our new Community Engagement Manager. You will love her – she brings enthusiasm, proven museum education experience, great new ideas, and wonderful people skills to TAM. She will oversee and coordinate all aspects of our community festivals and develop activities for TAM Studio. She is making an effort to meet everyone, but please feel free to come down to the education offices if you haven’t yet met her. I’m also copying her on this email, so you can reach out to her directly.


We are still working to fill the positions of Educator for Adult Learning and Educator for Student and Youth Learning, so more introductions are sure to follow in the coming months.


Kara returns from vacation on March 14th. In the meantime, please let me know if you need anything or if I can be of assistance.


Best regards,







Samantha Kelly

Director of Education
