“Docents help bring museum collections to life, connecting our visitors more deeply with the stories shared through Western art and artifacts. They are key to helping everyone from visiting schoolchildren to adults enjoying the museum understand not just the art, but the history of the American West,” said Liz Jackson, President and CEO of the Briscoe Western Art Museum.
“Many think the American West is just the stereotypical ‘Cowboys and Indians.’ But the truth is that the story of the West is a unique part of American history. And it’s still alive today. That’s what the Briscoe – and our volunteers – help museum visitors see in greater detail. We look forward to sharing engaging Western history content and interpretation with our volunteers and viewing and interpreting the art of the American West together.”
