Oklahoma Contemporary

Gallery Guides

Gallery Guides bring the exhibitions of Oklahoma Contemporary Arts Center to life for a variety of audiences through Public Tours, Guided Group Tours, School Group Visits and Family Tours. To become a Gallery Guide, approved candidates are required to participate in a paid, comprehensive 12-hour training program to gain the skills, language and content expertise required for our visitor-centered and inquiry-based tours. Upon completion of training, guides will attend monthly paid training sessions and do supplementary research on artists and artworks from the exhibitions to enhance their tours. Guides are expected to give a minimum of two tours a month. Gallery Guides will work closely with the Director of Education and Public Programs and report directly to the Coordinator of Tour and School Programs.

We welcome candidates from a variety of backgrounds, including, but not limited to, educators, practicing artists, informal and formal educators, university students, professional actors, customer-service experts and those with a deep passion for contemporary art.
