In addition to submitting artwork to the Teen Council’s Turn On, Tune In, Tap Out exhibition, participating teen artists were asked to submit a song that either inspired their artwork or one they enjoyed listening to while they created their artwork. These songs have been compiled into playlists on Spotify, Youtube, and Apple Music for visitors to listen to while exploring the exhibition.
About CAMH’s 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.
Teen Council Members for the 2020-21 season are Matildé Acosta, Dawson Benner, Isaac Bremauntz, Jillian Green, Maddie Guyton, Elizabeth Harris-Guillory, Noah Henriquez, Celine Huang, Ava Jiang, Jessica Liu, Katrina Machetta, Izzy Parmenter, and Selena Ramos.
