Cheekwood Botanical Gardens Needs Guides and Docents

Cheekwood is currently seeking energetic volunteers to train for weekend museum docent positions. The weekend docent is a vital link between the visitor and their experience at Cheekwood. This is an excellent opportunity to pursue your interest in art and in Nashville’s cultural history. Other than a love of people and learning, no experience is necessary.

September 11 - mid-November
6:00 - 8:00 pm

A special evening training session will be offered this year with topics including the Matilda Geddings Gray Foundation FabergĂ© collection, Cheekwood’s porcelain, silver, American art pottery and snuff bottle collections, American fine art paintings, drawings and sculpture. There will also be classes on art history, touring techniques, school tours, and Cheek history. These sessions will be taught by education staff and museum curators.
