Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth Presents Teen-Artist Project: Annual Exhibition

Teen-Artist Project: Annual Exhibition
Modern Art Museum of Fort Worth at Gallery 414
May 14 through May 29, 2011

The Modern’s Teen-Artist Project pairs area high school students with artists as teachers. Every fall and spring, up to fifteen dedicated, hardworking, and creative students are accepted into the program and spend Sunday afternoons working with program artists in the Modern’s galleries and studio. Throughout the program, students become familiar with the museum as a resource for looking at and learning about art, expanding each student’s art practice with the introduction of new concepts, artists, and media.

This year, students have had the opportunity to work with six exceptional artists: Eric Eley, Harmony Padgett, Matthew Sontheimer, Justin Shull, Candace Hicks, and David Willburn. Each artist has worked with the students over a four-week period, using the Modern’s current exhibitions as a springboard for the discussion of ideas, thus broadening the scope of their individual practices. In addition to this time in the galleries and the studio, students spend an afternoon each semester visiting museums and galleries throughout the DFW Metroplex, further expanding their knowledge of art as found in their own community.

In May of 2011, students from both semesters will have an exhibition of the work they have made during their time in the TAP program. This exhibition will open on Saturday, May 14 and continue through Sunday, May 29.

The opening reception will be held on May 14 from 6-8 p.m.

Gallery 414 is open from 12 – 5 p.m. on weekends and weekdays by appointment.
