Event - Queens Teens

Queens Teens

06.06.15, 12:00 pm

The Queens Teens invite you to participate in the public demonstrations of their year-end independent projects.

With generous support from the Keith Haring Foundation, youth participants in the Queens Teens program have studied different ways art and artists interact and engage with diverse publics. Initially inspired by last year’s 13 Most Wanted Andy Warhol exhibition (originally intended to be a public mural as part of the New York State Pavilion but then almost immediately painted over), the Queens Teens have studied (often controversial) public and socially and politically engaged artist projects at the Queens Museum, around New York City and throughout history including a visit to the Keith Haring Foundation and archives.

Drawing from those experiences, Queens Teens have conceptualized, produced and are presenting their own art projects that speak to issues and concerns in their lives. We invite you to interact with them and their work.

This event is free with Museum admission  (suggested admission) and Teen projects will be taking place and presented throughout Museum public and classroom spaces. Please ask at the admissions desks for a guide.
