Where Do We Go From Here? is a group exhibition featuring work by 25 Houston-area teen artists. Students submitted work in response to the questions: What did you leave behind? What are you taking into your new reality? And how have you been born anew? Through a variety of media including painting, photography, sculpture, and video, the artists share stories not necessarily about radical circumstances, but about how they reflected, grew, and matured from their unique life experiences.
The public opening reception is free to attend, but RSVPs are encouraged. CAMH members will get a private first look at the exhibition during the Member’s Preview from 6–7PM.

About Teen Council
Composed of 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 its members and can change from year to year, but past events developed by the Teen Council include virtual zines, exhibitions, fashion shows, film screenings, listening parties, music festivals, and poetry readings.

Holden Aramburu, Elisabeth Bell, Alexandra Davis Donaldson, Sarah Jones, Lucy Katz, Jones Mays, Matthew Messinger, Kaviya Ravikumar, Max Scholl, Camille Siptak, Elliot Stravato, Katelyn Ta, and Julia Wykoff.
