Teen Artist + Mentor Program Exhibition Opening Reception
Friday, July 8, 7-9P
FREE and open to the public
The Contemporary Austin is proud to present Fresh Exchange, the culminating group exhibition of the museum's Teen Artist + Mentor Program. Collaboration is the foundation of this community arts initiative, in which professional artist-mentors are paired with exemplary high school students from the Austin area. Together, they meet for seven months in the artist's studio space to create new work. Hours of conversation, exploration of artistic mediums, and field trips to creative venues around Austin weave together in the final exhibition of collaborative work.
The Teen Artist + Mentor Program is committed to providing opportunities to students who have limited access to arts resources. The Contemporary Austin values the importance
of arts education and offers this program free of cost. Special thanks to our artist-mentors, the students' families and teachers, and Pump Project for their dedication and support.
Fresh Exchange is on view July 8 - August 13 at Pump Project. Gallery hours:
Wednesdays and Saturdays, 12-5PM or by appt.
