Docent Program Invaluable to Community

Arts Council Docents are trained volunteers/educators who staff the Depot Gallery, and help to interpret and explain elements of exhibits.

Leslie Bell joined the Docent Program last March. She was inspired to join the SSAC Docent Program because she new that it would offer camaraderie with fellow artists and art lovers. As she recalls her first year as a docent, she remembers diverse exhibits, including the chance to gallery sit for a rare collection of Diego Rivera, learning about art with other docents, and the chance to educate the community. "I really appreciate the docent program for opening my eyes to new art forms,"she says. A Steamboat resident for 16 years, Leslie is an artist, piano teacher, and mail carrier.
