Interested in becoming a docent?

Mingei Docents foster access and inclusion by welcoming all visitors, invoking conversation and critical thinking, all while celebrating visitors’ unique identities and perspectives. Mingei Docents are the catalyst to discovery: helping visitors to develop a deeper understanding of art on view and how it’s relevant to their lives through guided tours and discussion.

We will begin a new docent training in Fall 2022. Please click the button below to submit your contact information and receive more details about our docent program.
