Area high school students have submitted works for this juried exhibition, the first biannual show organized by the Museum’s Teen Council (TC), a group of high school students employed by the Museum to plan programs for themselves and their peers.  The theme of the show—hair—unifies the diverse entries and explores personal aesthetic, sexual, social and religious ideologies of adolescents.  Thirty-one young artists careen through various media to represent their views of themselves and the world.  The catalogue includes an essay by Peter Precourt, a statement by Meredith Wilson, and a statement by the TC members.

Artists featured in the exhibition:  Nicole Allen, Michael Bernell, Beau Boles, Shannon Raven Clark, Allison Crider, Jennifer Cummins, Meredith Cunningham, Christina Diliberto, Erin Doyle, Jonathan Eastman, Andrew Francis, Michael Furst, Andrew Francis, Michael Furst, Andrea Glasser, Amy Greene, Julie Hill, Sarah Hirsch, Jeannine Kocian, Anya Lloyd, Marisa Miller, Jessica Pollock, Megan Ray, Patrick Renner, Salomon Requeña, Christine Ross, Tim Silverman, Corey Towers, Bao Vo, Katie Weymouth and William Winkler.
