Gallery Guides

Posted throughout the museum, Gallery Guides offer visitors a singular opportunity to explore art through one-on-one conversation. Gallery Guides have extensive backgrounds in the arts and are trained to engage individuals in meaningful, shared dialogue. Certified by New York State in museum security, the Gallery Guides are also responsible for protecting visitors and works of art. Gallery Guides are dressed in black with colorful scarves or ties and wear orange or black buttons that read “Let’s Talk Art.” 

Gallery Guides speak a range of languages and are trained to provide verbal imaging descriptions for visitors with low vision or blindness.

Visitors of all ages and abilities are encouraged to approach and speak with Gallery Guides.

“I loved that I was not embarrassed to ask a question… that the Guide was not in a rush to get me to see more art without understanding any of what I had seen.”
