AK Teens: Future Curators Program

AK Teens: Future Curators is a program designed to expose high school students to the museum field. Juniors and seniors in high school may apply for the opportunity to participate in the program as curators; students in grades 9–12 can enter their artwork to be considered for the Future Curators’ exhibition.

The after-school portion of the AK Teens: Future Curators program is for students in grades 11 and 12. Throughout the course of the program, students will learn the different components of creating an exhibition, meet with various Albright-Knox staff members, and organize an exhibition of artwork by local high school students.

Students are involved with multiple components of their exhibition, including selecting the artwork; designing the exhibition’s layout; and writing the wall text, in-gallery labels, and a press release.

Applications to the 2015 program are now closed and the deadline for artwork submissions has passed.
