GenART: Teen Day


March 19 (Saturday)
Noon–1:30 p.m.

It’s #AtownGenART day at the Museum! Drop in for teen-centric activities across the Museum, including art making, performances, gallery activities, music, dancing, and more. GenART is free and open to all teens 13+ with a middle or high school ID. No RSVP, just show up!

• Explore the galleries on a teen Treasure Hunt that leads to pop-up stations for interactive art-making in response to select artworks in the permanent collection.
• Selfie with a sculpture in Trexler Gallery.
• Create concrete poetry in Butz Gallery while viewing Moon Theater (pictured below).
• Lounge in a room designed by Frank Lloyd Wright and learn about the materials he used to build his houses, then make your own leaded-window design (Wright’s famous for ‘em!) using geometric shapes inspired by the architect.
• Look for the oldest painting in the Museum, in our Kress Gallery, and view history up close!

After the Hunt, claim your prize and stick around for snacks and share your thoughts and experiences on a community board. End your art-filled day by snapping a selfie with one of the provided props and post using the hashtag #AtownGenART.
