Museum of Fine Arts Houston: hang@MFAH

Houston, TX

Overview

Could you ever imagine spending half an hour looking at one work of art? Are you interested in how MFAH collections and computer programming relate? Check out hang@MFAH (Houston Art New Generation at the Museum of Fine Arts, Houston), the Museum's teen leadership group!

Hang@MFAH is for motivated high school teens who are interested in everything from talking about art to videogame hacking. Throughout the year, hang@MFAH members spend time with a mentor artist in the galleries to discuss works of art and explore concepts through analog and digital tools to develop creative and critical thinking skills.

Meet-ups are designed for teens who are hungry to learn more about art in an atmosphere that encourages dialogue and asking questions. Hang@MFAH members organize teen-focused events, produce new ways to see the MFAH collections for their peers, and explore careers in museums through specialized opportunities. Hang@MFAH is by application only.

Hang@MFAH is looking for high school teens (age 15–18) who are:

• Intellectually curious about art You are open to exploring different perspectives and modes of art making.
