Guide and Seek is an, interactive tour experience for High School tour groups that aligns with state visual arts core standards. During a Guide and Seek tour students and teachers will be led by a skilled art guide to seek and find personal connections to art through discussion and interactive activities.

Three types of docent-led tours are offered through Guide and Seek. “Behind the Scenes” gives a glimpse of what it takes to put together an exhibition and models for students how to connect and present works of art. “Connect” gives students the opportunity to connect and respond to visual art. It teaches students that art can be used to help exemplify thoughts, feelings, and/or ideals regarding contemporary issues. 

SenseABLE is a new option in 2021 and focuses on a sensory experience for students and visitors, giving them the rare opportunity to touch and feel different aspects of specific artwork as they focus on the element of texture. This tour was designed to offer a hands-on experience for all students, but specifically those with disabilities. 

Guide and Seek tours are approximately 45 minutes in length and can take place in any of the exhibitions located in the Upper Galleries.
