Landmarks Docents are a group of dedicated students and volunteers who lead tours of Landmarks public art. They contribute time, energy, and ideas to make the Landmarks collection accessible to the university community and to campus visitors.

Tours led by docents offer insight into Landmarks projects and build awareness about modern and contemporary art. While leading tours, docents provide a brief orientation to artists and works in the collection. Docents also answer questions that visitors may have.

Volunteer docents develop reading, research, and critical skills through a series of training sessions that are conducted periodically. These sessions enable docents to become effective communicators and successful educators.

Landmarks Docents contribute two to three hours per week to lead tours and attend meetings. To learn more about becoming a docent, please read the Docent program description.
