Ways to help


Being a Docent means building the foundation for a rewarding museum experience for each visitor as well as having the opportunity to grow and learn. Though at times a Docent is part teacher and part entertainer, teaching credentials and public speaking experience are not required. If you have the interest, enthusiasm and time, the FIA's Education Department will make sure you receive the training you need. Docents are expected to contribute an average of eight hours per month. This includes participation in training sessions as well as conducting tours.

About usThe Flint Institute of Arts is the second largest art museum in Michigan and one of the largest museum-connected community art schools in the United States. Each year, the museum serves more than 160,000 people, through its exhibitions, events, and programs. For 90+ years, the FIA has been responsible for acquiring, protecting, and presenting a collection of art and artifacts spanning the globe. The world-renowned collection, which exceeds 8,500 objects, is significant for its depth of important European and American paintings and sculptures, 15th century to the present, and its extensive holdings of decorative and applied arts including important ethnographic study collections dating back five millennia. The FIA promotes the power of the visual arts by providing lifelong learning opportunities to engage and educate a diverse regional audience.
