Three new volunteer roles announced in the Kemper Museum Docent Program

This fall, as Kemper Museum of Contemporary Art welcomes the first in-person school field trips since March 2020, the museum announced three new volunteer roles in the Kemper Museum Docent Program, which was reimagined during the pandemic to become more accessible to both volunteers and to visitors. Equipped with a new structure and virtual and in-person programs developed over the past two years, the museum is actively recruiting volunteers for a variety of positions that encourage visitors to engage with contemporary art and ideas and help to create a sense of belonging for people from all backgrounds.

The new volunteer roles include museum engagement volunteers, who welcome visitors to the museum and facilitate engagement activities; young visitors guides, who lead tours and engagement programs for schools and families; and teen and adult guides who engage museum visitors over the age of 13. The roles are open to all, and each includes training—no art experience is required to apply, just a genuine interest in contemporary art and ideas. The next training begins Saturday, October 1.

All Kemper Museum programs remain free and open to the public, thanks to the generous support of members and donors. The Kemper Museum Docent Program is supported by the Family of Mary Beth Smith.
