Salt Lake City – Attention all museum lovers, cultural enthusiasts, history buffs and devoted art advocates: Are you looking for a way to serve and inspire others in your community? The Utah Museum of Fine Arts is looking for passionate volunteers to serve as Weekend Docents!

The UMFA depends on a dedicated docent team each year to fulfill its mission and guide thousands of visitors through its halls. Weekend Docents lead public Highlights of the Collections Tours on Saturdays and Sundays at 1:30 pm and on the first Wednesday of each month at 6:30 pm. Docents have the opportunity to delve deep into art history and the UMFA’s exhibitions, gain valuable communication skills, and earn rewarding community service experience.

Weekend docent training classes for 2014 will consist of six 90-minute meetings held on Saturdays from 11 am to 12:30 pm beginning April 26. Applicants must be able to attend all training sessions. If you are eager to become a UMFA docent, please contact the Volunteer Program Manager, Ali Monjar, at (801) 581-3580, or visit for applications and more information.
