Art Guides

MAM's Art Guide Program trains dedicated individuals to lead tours of our exhibitions for all ages. Employing the Visual Thinking Strategies approach - developed by MoMA's Philip Yenawine - Art Guides reach our audiences by helping them learn to look at, appreciate, and respond to contemporary art. If you're passionate about art and enjoy sharing the museum experience, the Art Guide Program is perfect for you! If you would like to find out more, please contact Kay Grissom-Kiely, Curator of Education, or call 406.728.0447.
