SITE Guide

SITE Santa Fe

SITE Guides (SGs) are a vital part of the mission of SITE Santa Fe. They are responsible for engaging with museum visitors, leading tours, and facilitating a positive relationship between art, audience, and the museum. SGs also help monitor the galleries to promote the safety of our visitors and of the artwork, and offer the public an opportunity to connect to our museum and exhibitions in a meaningful way.

SGs must be comfortable working in a public-facing role, and be confident interacting with individuals of varying degrees of experience with art. SGs are scheduled Thursdays through Sundays, but may be required to work other days of the week for special events. SG’s report to the Education Coordinator.
