Exhibit Docent

Do you enjoy cooking? Do you like learning about history? Are you a food enthusiast who love to share and talk to others about food history, food preparation and processing? If so, we invite you to apply to become our docent for our fall exhibit Culinary Curiosity at the library. 

Docents are life-long learners, educators, and ambassadors who share their passion for history and deliver accurate information. Docents encourage exploration and interpretation of the exhibit by engaging others in dialog and inquiry. They also provide an enjoyable and meaningful learning experience to the exhibit visitors. At AHML, Docents will be giving drop-in tours to the Culinary Curiosity exhibit to visitors of all ages and backgrounds.

Culinary Curiosity is an exhibit owned by the Kendall College Trust and it celebrates technical innovations in the world of food. It features historic objects from the 19th to 20th century from different parts of the world through the lens of food preparation techniques, including mixing, roasting, forming, and so on. The exhibit will be open on October 4th, 2019 – January 5th, 2020.
