The Butler Institute of American Art Seeks Docents

YOUNGSTOWN — The Butler Institute of American Art is offering classes for new docents.

Docents are trained museum volunteers who offer teaching, understanding, and appreciation of art through guided tours of the permanent collection. They provide a valuable support to the operation of the museum and to the public through their understanding of the museum’s collection.

“The docents are a dedicated group of well-trained volunteers who continue to be one of The Butler Institute of American Art’s most valuable resources,” said Joyce Mistovich, director of education in The Butler Education Department.

No previous museum experience is necessary to become a docent, but a willingness to participate and commitment to study the masterpieces in the museum collection is required.

Classes will begin mid-September, 2022 and run through mid-April, 2023. For additional information call Mistovich at 330-743-1107 extension 1101.
