Whatcom Museum looking for docents

Applications are now being accepted for Whatcom Museum’s new docent program, which is being developed in anticipation of the November opening of its new facility, the Lightcatcher Building. The goal is to build an enthusiastic team of informed guides available for adult tours and informal gallery interpretation for walk-in visitors to the new building.

In addition to gallery tours, docents will provide architecture tours. Olson Sundberg Kundig Allen, a celebrated Northwest design firm based in Seattle, designed the Lightcatcher, which was winner of the 2009 AIA National Firm Award.

“If you like art, architecture, art history or regional history, you should explore the idea of becoming a docent,” Docent Educator Marilyn Burns said. “It’s a fun way to give to your community and great way to learn more about the diverse offerings we have at the Museum.”

Training begins after Labor Day. Interested? Call Marilyn Burns, Docent Educator at (360) 778-8938 or email her at mlburns@cob.org.
