Rehoboth Art League to host volunteer docent open house April 7

March 20, 2021

The Rehoboth Art League invites community members with an interest in history, the arts, or both to attend a virtual docent open house at 10 a.m., Wednesday, April 7, via Zoom.

The Homestead Docent Program, in concert with the mission of the Rehoboth Art League, is committed to telling the story of the house and gardens to visitors, and contributing to its maintenance and enhancement.

RAL’s docent team staffs the Homestead on a volunteer basis from May through October. Docents are frequently the first face for new visitors to the art league campus; they are tasked with sharing the history of the building, and the people who lived and worked there. They promote the history of the Rehoboth Art League through sharing information about the organization’s founder, Louise Corkran, and her husband Col. Wilbur Sherman Corkran, who developed the Town of Henlopen Acres around the property. Docents promote art league artists and exhibitions, and encourage visitors to explore the Homestead’s formal garden, as well as the rest of the campus and its historic buildings.

Community members interested in learning about the art league’s docent program are encouraged to attend the information session. To register and receive a Zoom meeting link, contact Nick Serratore, Rehoboth Art League exhibitions director, at
