What is a Docent?
As tour guides and gallery interpreters, docents bring art to life for thousands of visitors each year. Docents guide visitors toward a personal connection with art as they create an inviting and interactive environment where individual discovery and a deeper appreciation and understanding can occur. Docents talk with each other and patrons about art and life, they inquire into the history of art, and they engage their imagination every day.
