Future Curators

AK Teens: Future Curators is an annual 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 to 12 can enter artworks to be considered for inclusion in the Future Curators' annual exhibition.

Throughout the course of the program, students will learn about 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 will be involved all aspects of the exhibition, including selecting the artwork; designing the exhibition’s layout; and writing the wall text, in-gallery labels, and press release.
