ArtPrize season is here--and this year marks the 6th Anniversary of this incredible event. UICA invites you to plug in to this year's excitement and volunteer with us during ArtPrize 2014. This year's dates are September 24th-October 12th, and UICA is looking for a large group of volunteers to help us create a smooth and fun guest experience.  We still have shifts to choose from, as well as some sweet membership incentives for serving multiple shifts.

UICA's Docent Program

Docents are trained volunteers enthusiastic about helping visitors engage with UICA and the artwork in our galleries. This collaboration between our Docents, Education, and Curatorial staff will expand visitor's experience of contemporary art and UICA, providing a dynamic and welcoming experience for visitors and tours.

Rewards of Being a Docent: Expand your ability to engage with Contemporary Art in a more in depth way: learn different methods of talking about Contemporary Art, share ideas and experiences with visitors, learn invaluable in helping guests plug in to current exhibits and UICA programming, and learn about community outreach and on going opportunities.

Docent Training: No teaching experience required. Study of the context in which each artist is currently creating: analysis of materials used by artist, artist's intention, and ideas. Includes readings, presentations, in-gallery talks by UICA Education and Curatorial staff. 

Become a Docent today! For more information, contact Miranda Krajniak at or (616) 454-7000 ext. 14.
