Learn how to find meaning in any work of art. Lead artful conversations and help others start seeing too. Apply to become a WAM Gallery Host.
The WAM Gallery Host program is an opportunity for University of Minnesota students to lead art viewing tours in the galleries for the University community and the public.
WAM Gallery Hosts lead 15 minute, drop-in, ‘study sessions’ that teach audiences the basic vocabulary of artists and how to find meaning in any work of art. This is an excellent opportunity for students to integrate art into their experience at the University and to become part of the WAM community. The program is open to all University of Minnesota undergraduate and graduate students. Students in all majors are encouraged to apply.
Participation in the Gallery Host program is contingent upon the successful completion of orientation. Interested students must attend training sessions to be held on January 17, and 18, 2019. Each session will last four hours and give students the skills to successfully host study sessions. Gallery Hosts commit to hosting 2 study sessions per semester. $200 stipend. 5 spots available.
Academic credit may be available. Please submit cover letter and resume to WAM’s Director of Education, Jamee Yung, at firstname.lastname@example.org by December 14, 2018.
