Docents needed to lead tours at Hallie Ford Museum of Art

The Hallie Ford Museum of Art is recruiting volunteers to lead guided tours.

Training includes lectures, presentations by guest speakers and gallery sessions on the museum's permanent collection and temporary exhibitions. The next class for docents begins Sept. 17, and the application deadline is Aug. 31.

For eight months, docent trainees participate in weekly classes, and they give guided tours in the spring. Docents are asked to become or remain members of the museum, contribute $15 per year and make a two-year commitment once they graduate.

An application packet is available at the museum or by calling (503) 370-6855.
