Join Teen Council!

Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art is seeking applications from creative, motivated high school students with an interest in art and community engagement to be part of the Museum’s 2015-2016 Teen Council.

We’re looking for a diverse group of teens who are excited about planning and marketing programs for their peers, advising us on teen audiences, and learning about the Museum, its collections, and exhibitions. Council members must commit to attending and actively participating in Council meetings, communicating with fellow members via the Council’s private Facebook page, and working collaboratively as part of a team.

The Council meets 2 – 4 times per month, and members must commit to attendance at 2/3 of regularly scheduled meetings. Meetings will be held on Wednesday afternoons, Thursday afternoons, and Saturday mornings, on a rotating basis. Interested teens should fill out an online application form.
