What is the Bronx Museum Teen Council?
Created in 2005, the Bronx Museum Teen Council provides a paid opportunity for teens to develop art and collaboration skills and engage deeply with the Museum and New York’s contemporary art scene. Through the school year, a group of teens work closely with Museum educators to explore art and the museum space through artist interviews, video production, zine publication, and the curation of a teen art exhibit.
