Support for the Teen Team is provided by
The High Museum of Art's Teen Team is a group of creative high school students who share a common interest in art and community engagement. The Teen Team gets behind-the-scenes access to the Museum, plans teen nights and events, assists with our summer camp, and learns about the Museum's exhibitions and collections. Most importantly, they tell us what's working for teens at the High and what's not.
Intersection X Where Process Meets Innovation
This past summer, the Teen Team, in an experiment never-before attempted, curated an exhibition of prints from the High's Modern and Contemporary Art collection. In just seven weeks, the Teen Team worked with Museum staff to coordinate all aspects of the exhibition, from researching the artworks, designing the exhibition layout, and writing wall labels, to painting and spackling gallery walls and installing the show. The resulting Intersection X was a celebration of group process, innovation, and art. Check out photos of Intersection X, and read

Review from BurnAway >>
The Teen Team was lucky enough to work with three local (seriously awesome) artists whose work was a part of Drawing Inside the Perimeter. Fahamu Pecou, Alex Brewer (HENSE), and Seana Reilly all stopped by to hang out, make art and share stories about being a working artist.
