Every other year, CAMH’s Teen Council organizes an exhibition in the lower level Zilkha Gallery featuring new work by Houston-area teen artists. Teen Council selects the theme and title of the exhibition while partnering with CAMH staff to develop exhibition design and public programming. Drawing from an open call, the Teen Council will select work that effectively responds to the questions:
- How do you define “The Screen”?
- How does “The Screen” protect you or hold you back?
- How can you crack “The Screen”?
The deadline for submissions is Monday, January 11, 2021 at 12PM Central Time.
About CAMH’s Teen Council
The Teen Council is a group of dedicated high-school students who are employed by the museum to create programming for their peers. Council members participate in a two year-long program where they receive in-depth, behind-the-scenes museum experience; learn about pathways to creative careers; and develop leadership, collaboration, and critical thinking skills while gaining real-world experience planning exhibitions and events in a museum setting. Applications to CAMH’s Teen Council are available at camh.org Spring 2021.
