ICP Museum Joins New York City’s Inaugural Teen Arts Week

May 02, 2019

The ICP Museum is excited to join 92Y and organizations across New York City for the first-ever citywide celebration of the arts for teens, by teens.

During Teen Arts Week (May 13–19, 2019), dozens of arts organizations will offer free classes, performances, music jams, poetry slams, art-making, films, career workshops, and more. Teens will be able to gain hands-on experience, engage with professionals, and explore pathways to employment in creative arts fields. The week was initiated by 10 Teen Producers at 92Y who will hold a Teen Arts Week Youth Summit Wednesday, May 15 from 4 to 6 PM at 92Y. All events for Teen Arts Week are free to students 14+ with a valid school ID.

At the ICP Museum, students are invited to participate in an inquiry-based guided tour of our current exhibitions, Your Mirror: Portraits from the ICP Collection and For Freedoms: Where Do We Go From Here? Led by Museum Educators, this guided tour will encourage students to discover visual information, realize multiple interpretations and meaning, and make connections to classroom content. Following the guided tour, students will participate in a hands-on photography workshop, using images from the ICP Museum as a point of inspiration for their own imagemaking. Students are introduced to concepts in photography, learn to use Fuji Instax cameras, and make instant photographs in partners focusing on a pre-selected theme. Each student walks away with two images.
