Teen Metropolitan Museum Event

Teens from the five boroughs were invited to the Metropolitan Museum of Art on October 16, 2015, to explore both the museum and a range of interactive art exhibits that had been positioned around the museum where teens could create their own art.  Over 2500 teens attended.

A big thank you to Marie Clapot, Assistant Museum Educator for Access and Community Programs at the Met, who helped coordinate AHRC NYC’s involvement.

AHRC NYC’s Staff Training Director & Lead InvestigatorJohn Goodson said, “I thought the Met was a fantastic opportunity for students to learn about past art, engage with contemporary art, and interact with their peers in a truly unique New York City location.  We hope this marks the beginning of a co-beneficial relationship between AHRC Middle/High School and the Met.”
