Teen Council Exhibition 2024

Every year, The Bronx Museum invites participants in the Teen Council program to curate an exhibition of their peers’ artwork.

The Teen Council participants collaboratively determine the exhibition’s theme and then invite NYC-based artists ages 14–19 to submit their artwork through an open call. Artworks selected by Teen Council participants from the open call will be exhibited at the Museum from May 22—June 16, 2024.

May 22 - Jun 16, 2024

About Teen Council

Teen Council is a four-month paid internship for New York City high school students (ages 14-19), offered in both the fall and the spring.

Created in 2005, Teen Council offers opportunities for young people to engage deeply with contemporary art and the museum space. In this intensive after-school program, teens discuss and express ideas and create art relating to issues affecting young people today. Participants also gain experience in collaboration, communication, and curation.  Teens may participate in one or both sessions each year.

Teen Council is a paid opportunity. Projects during each cohort may include:

  • Meeting and interviewing contemporary artists
  • Curating in-person and digital art exhibitions
  • Creating work for and publishing a zine
  • Collaborating with other teen groups
  • Exploring The Bronx Museum’s current exhibitions and developing interpretive materials
