Docent Updates and Reminders

Hello TAM Docents,


This is a reminder that we have docent training next Wednesday, June 10th at 10:30 am. We will meet in the Murdock Classroom before heading down to the Event Space for Rock’s lecture. Rock will be speaking about the upcoming exhibition Roger Shimomura – An American Knockoff. This exhibition will be on view in the Annette B. Weyerhaeuser Gallery and it will open on Saturday, June 20th.


I’ve attached MD’s paper on Caitlin to this email. Laura really liked the paper and thought it would be helpful for the docents in regards to the Haub Family Collection of Western American Art. Myles has uploaded all the docent training videos. I believe he’s still waiting for Agapita Lopez’s PowerPoint presentation before that video gets uploaded. A few docents and a curator mentioned that it would be a good idea for the docents to discuss Bill Schenck’s lecture (which should be posted on the training videos page) at the next docent training. Please try to watch the lecture at home if you didn’t go to the lecture last month.

Please RSVP if you haven’t already for the Volunteer Appreciation Dinner on Tuesday, June 9th at 6 pm. The theme is “Thank you for helping us grow!” and it’s a garden party inspired by the Eloquent Objects exhibition. I will be wearing flowers and hope to see others wearing flowers, too!


We have been offered a free docent led tour at LeMay America’s Car Museum on Thursday, June 18 at 10:30 am. Please let me know if you will be able to attend this tour and if you do, you should plan to arrive at TAM around 10 am before heading to ACM.


As always, please email me if you have any questions. Get outside and enjoy this beautiful weather!
