HOMiE: In Our Eyes

(Saturday) (Sunday)

Teens Curate Teens in Honor of the MFA Teen Arts Council 10th Anniversary

In celebration of the Teen Arts Council’s 10th anniversary, the MFA partnered with Boston Public Schools to present the Museum’s first exhibition of juried artworks by teens. Boston-area high school students created works that explore the idea of home—how it’s defined, how it influences identity, and how it can change over time. Their peers from the Teen Arts Council selected 44 paintings, drawings, and photographs for the exhibition, with guidance and support from MFA staff including Ann and Graham Gund Director Matthew Teitelbaum and Edward Saywell, Chief of Exhibitions Strategy and Gallery Displays. The Teen Arts Council was also mentored by professionals from the surrounding community, including Nadeem Mazen, Cambridge City Councilor and founder of danger!awesome and Nimblebot; Lisa Simmons, director of the Roxbury International Film Festival; Jay Calderin, founder of Boston Fashion Week; and local artist Evelyn Rydz. Related programming for “HOMiE” includes gallery talks with the artists, a spoken word and poetry event, and panel discussions.

The Teen Arts Council is the MFA’s leadership development program for Boston-area teens, offering participants the opportunity to engage with art, culture and history; develop workplace and team-building skills; and learn about a range of professional options and career paths.
