The Docent Memorial Art Camp Appeal

Art Camp

As spring blossoms at the Modern, we are excited to renew our annual call to support the Docent Memorial Art Camp Appeal. For those unfamiliar with this effort, since 2009 (excluding pandemic years) we have honored the memory and dedication of docents who have served before and alongside us by helping young people in need attend Art Camp and Art Study. In recent years we’ve commemorated the contributions of Don Matheson, Martin Posner, Janice Raoul, Robert Turner III, and many others who made an enduring imprint on the Modern’s docent program.

This appeal not only recognizes the time and effort these docents invested but also celebrates the profound impact they had on countless lives. Through their dedication and leadership, Modern docents have enriched the experiences of generations of schoolchildren and adults alike, building a meaningful legacy of artistic inspiration and education.

We invite you to join us in continuing the legacy of these remarkable individuals by directly supporting campers' registration fees.* Our goal is to cover registration costs for the 12 campers currently on the scholarship waitlist, and move them into a camp spot.

Support can be made in full registration amounts; alternatively, multiple docents can join together to cover a single registration fee. You also have the option to choose a custom amount, simply enter the custom amount in the “Other” box below.

*Please note, these payments are not tax-deductible.
