Doug Goering has been working with the CAC in the Communication Department as the video navigator since January 2016. He leads a series called “Doug Takes You There,” where he tours and explains the different exhibitions shown in our galleries through his eyes.
Now he’s ready for another challenge; he’ll be expanding the way he shares his story through additional blog entries. The blog will hope to feature interviews with the staff, artists and document the ins and outs of the CAC through his perspective. For this first blog entry, we’d like you to get to know Doug a little better, so we sat down with him and got his take on the experience he’s had working with the CAC thus far.
To get to know Doug even more, take a look at his video series, “Doug Takes You There” at https://vimeo.com/contemporaryartscenter
