Fenimore's volunteer docent program

By Nancy Karaman, Volunteer Services Administrator

Today, Nancy will introduce us to Fenimore Art Museum's docent program. Look for upcoming posts written by our fantastic docents!

The docent program commenced in 2008 when a group of inspired Fenimore Art Museum volunteers were gathered together to learn more about the exhibitions in order to become the knowledgeable, welcoming face of the Museum. The goal of the program was, and is, to offer to our visitors a well-informed docent staff whose purpose is to enrich visitor experience. Fenimore docents bring to the museum a wide variety of experiences and interests. The group has expanded over the last two years and currently numbers thirty-seven, including three Junior Docents who serve during the summer months. If you are interested in becoming a volunteer docent, you can contact me at

Here are some pictures of our amazing docents at a recent training session.
