  • Saint Joseph's University students can get involved with the Maguire Art Museum in several ways.

    • Collections Management. Bring the university’s impressive collection to the public by helping manage the database. 
    • Gallery Attendant. As visitors tour the museum, speak with them about the artwork on view and answer questions.
    • Docent. Students will be educated about the works on view so that they can lead tours of the museum. 
    • Teacher. Qualified art education students can work with K-12 students on gallery tours and art instruction.
    • Visitor Center Greeter. The museum will have a Visitor Center located on the arboretum grounds where visitors can get brochures, maps and ask questions. It also likely will include merchandise for sale.
