The Hawaii State Art Museum (HiSAM) is looking for enthusiastic art lovers to be volunteer docent guides.

The four-month training session begins in early October 2015 and ends in February 2016.

Docents will learn to give informative and interactive tours focusing on the works of art on display in HiSAM exhibitions. Each artwork belongs to the Art in Public Places Collection, a part of the Hawaii State Foundation on Culture and the Arts. The collection includes pieces from Hawaii artists, and is primarily focused on modern and contemporary art (1960 to the present).

For more information, call 586-9959 or email hisameducation@gmail.com.

The Hawaii State Art Museum is located at 250 South Hotel Street in downtown Honolulu. The museum is open Tuesdays through Saturdays, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Admission is free.
