Organized by The Bronx Museum of the Arts Teen Council, Smells Like Teen Spirit features artwork created by New York City-based teen artists. Through an open call, young people were invited to submit artworks reflecting upon the experience of being a teenager today. From the submissions, Teen Council selected the artworks for their annual exhibition.
Teen Council is made possible by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature and Pierre and Tana Matisse Foundation. Education and Community Programs are generously supported by Booth Ferris Foundation, Con Edison, Deutsche Bank, Laurie M.
