Teen Council

Composed of 12 young arts enthusiasts, Teen Council serves as the Museum’s vehicle for attracting the city’s teen population to CAMH and exposing them to the vibrant field of contemporary art. For council members, the group serves as a highly collaborative creative incubator that opens up opportunities for leadership, visual literacy, and life skill development. During weekly meetings, the council is introduced to the inner workings of museums and to the dynamic Houston arts community. Teen Council activities are decided upon by it members and can change from year to year, but past events developed by the Teen Council include art markets, exhibitions, fashion shows, film screenings, listening parties, music festivals, and poetry readings.

Teen Council is supported by Ms. Louisa Stude Sarofim, Texas Women for the Arts and Texas Commission on the Arts.

Applications to apply for the Teen Council are available online and accepted in the spring of each year. High school sophomores, juniors, and seniors are encouraged to apply. We will post the application and deadline next Spring. Please check back to apply.

The CAMH Teen Council is seeking young artists between the ages of 13-19 to submit artworks for the upcoming exhibition Perspectives 189: From the Margins.

This exhibition will focus on marginalization and its personal, political, and social manifestations. In their works, artists are invited to consider questions such as: What does marginalization look like, feel like? Does it have a sound? What does it produce? Can we prevent marginalization? Is it always negative?

Artists may submit work in any media including, but not limited to: painting, drawing, sculpture, photography, video, sound, performance, and installation. Work for the exhibition will be selected by the CAMH Teen Council and will be displayed in the Museum’s Zilkha Gallery. Accompanying the exhibition will be a full-color catalogue available for purchase in the Museum Shop.

Open to all teen-aged artists (13-19 years old) currently living in the Houston and surrounding areas. All works must be original and made within the last two years. Entries must be submitted via digital image and must be clearly labeled with the artist's contact information (name, address, phone number, email address) and artwork information (title, year, media, and dimensions). Proposals for site-specific installations may also be submitted.  Up to four artworks may be submitted for consideration. 

Send entries via email to: TC@camh.org

All entries must be received no later than March 13, 2015
