The Newport Art Museum is now accepting applications for its new “Gallery Guides” program. Gallery Guides will be dedicated volunteers who provide tours for visitors of all ages.

The guides will be trained to use questions, conversation and factual content to engage visitors in positive, meaningful and relevant exploration of the Museum’s exhibitions, collection and architecture.

Accepted candidates will go through six two-hour training sessions held October through January, and six professional development sessions held February through June.

Applications are due no later than Sunday, September 27 and can be found on the Museum’s website.

For more information visit NewportArtMuseum.org or contact Cristin SearlesBilodeau, Director of Visitor Services and Community Engagment, at csearles@newportartmuseum.org or 401-848-8200 x7989.
