Teen Council Exhibitions
Every other year, CAMH’s Teen Council organizes an exhibition in the Nina and Michael Zilkha Gallery featuring new work by young, Houston-area artists. The Teen Council selects the theme and title of the exhibition while partnering with CAMH staff to develop exhibition design, a printed catalogue, and public programming.

About Teen Council
Composed of young arts enthusiasts, Teen Council serves at 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. Activities are decided upon by its members and can change from year to year, but past programs developed by the group include art markets, exhibitions, fashion shows, film screenings, listening parties, music festivals, and poetry slams.
