Live (synchronous) Docent-Guided Tour

Live (synchronous) tours are led by a Frist Art Museum docent. They offer a preview of select works in an exhibition and encourage close study and conversation. These tours are slideshow-based, and each is approximately 30 minutes long. 

Reservations are required at least four weeks in advance for groups of 8 or more. Live (synchronous) docent-guided tours are scheduled on a case-by-case basis in conjunction with your school district’s requirements and docent availability. You may ask the Frist Art Museum to host the tour on Zoom, or a Frist Art Museum docent can join a meeting on your school’s or organization’s preferred video conferencing software.
