The Phippen Museum's outstanding volunteer docents spend a good deal of their time as tour guides, helping both adults and children understand the themes and artistic techniques associated with the museum's ongoing exhibits. But, from time to time, their special skills are also utilized to help curate museum exhibits by suggesting a specific artist or artwork for display that, for one reason or another, has captivated their imagination or piqued their interest.
So come experience some of our docent's favorite pieces in the exhibition, Docents Select. Created from pieces acquired since the museum's founding in 1984, this exhibit demonstrates the broad variety of artwork in the Phippen's Permanent Collection, the docents keen sense of wonder and
the historical significance of this community's thoughtful generosity.
