About the MAD Docent Program

Docents are highly dedicated volunteers who bring the Museum’s collection and exhibitions alive for adult audiences during regularly scheduled public and select private tours. They are a vital link between MAD’s visitors and the art in the galleries and further the educational mission of the museum. Docents use inquiry-based and dialogue-driven engagement strategies to explain curatorial ideas and help build deeper, more meaningful connections with the public. They are also part of a vibrant community of lifelong learners as they navigate an active schedule of changing exhibitions that document current and historic innovation in art, craft, and design and champion contemporary makers across creative fields.
