  • Teen Council is a group of motivated, inspired, and driven teens who work collaboratively to create a positive space in the museum. We create programs by teens, for teens. We are committed and excited to continue improving our events and the museum. We meet once every week (on alternating Wednesday or Thursday) and discuss ways to engage teens in the community through art. We are responsible for planning bi-yearly teen nights and smaller TEN (Teen Experience Night) events. We’re looking for a committed, creative, and diverse group who will help encourage teen involvement in Crystal Bridges and all around Northwest Arkansas.


  • Teen Council is filled with teens that have many different interests, talents, perspectives, and approaches to art.


  • One of the main purposes of Teen Council is to plan events for local teens to increase involvement in the museum and art as a whole. Our events reach teens throughout Northwest Arkansas.


  • We want Teen Council members to be involved and dedicated to attending as many Teen Council proceedings as possible, whether they be the weekly meetings, monthly TEN events, or the bi-annual teen nights.
