This dynamic team of young artists, art historians, actors, writers, cooks, and entrepreneurs was selected from a large pool of applicants and began the program in January 2013. They used the Gallery’s Collection to explore new ways of looking at art and learned what goes on behind-the-scenes at the museum from various staff members.

The 2013 Future Curators' exhibition of artwork by local high school students—In: Introspection, Interactionwas on view from Friday, May 3, through Sunday, June 16, 2013. An exhibition opening celebration planned by the team took place on Thursday, May 2, from 5 to 9 pm.
