The museum gives college and post college students a chance to immerse themselves in different aspects of museum management in every department. This program also gives new grads that invaluable work experience that means so much when looking for a career position.
The Bass Museum of Art has founded a teen council that meets once a week to develop ways to get people excited about the museum and participating in museum activities. Many art museums around the country have started such programs and the teens get to network with each other to learn and experience more.
What museum can function without their docents. The docents often provide the backbone of the museum, providing tours to the public, serving as guides and experts for regular visitors and giving the artwork a voice.
Lectures and Concerts
And to bring more art to the Bass Museum of Art, every month the museum hosts musicians, artists and arti historians to offer lectures or performances in their Taplin Hall.
In addition to all of the wonderful programs that the Bass Museum of Art offers the public the museum is also available for private use during nonpublic hours. Whether you’re just an individual or an entire corporation, you can schedule almost any event at the Bass Museum of Art and the museum has been used to host receptions, press conferences, award ceremonies, parties, artistic events, and other more interesting parties. The Bass Museum of Art features a number of different spaces that can accommodate groups from 10 to 300 people. Sit down meals can be served for up to 80 people and larger groups of up to 300 can be accommodated for a cocktail or buffet style service.

If you’re thinking of having a reception that is both outdoors and indoors the Bass Museum of Art will work to accommodate your desires.
