Nelson-Atkins Teen Art Project at Boardwalk
April 02, 2013
The Teen Advisory Group (TAG) at the Nelson-Atkins Museum has included MCPL in their Teen Voice Project. The teens have designed eight large oddly-shaped paper mache vessels and placed them in different locations throughout Kansas City. Each vessel poses a different question – for instance, the one located in our Young Adult/Teen area asks, "What is your definition of success?"
The ultimate goal is to give an opportunity for teens to be heard. To answer the question, teens can use the attached Sharpies to write or draw whatever comes to mind. However, don't write or draw anything that may embarrass you later on, since the vessels will be open to the public at the Nelson-Atkins Museum of Art on April 26. The unveiling ceremony will be at the museum from 6:00 p.m. - 8:00 p.m.
In the next few weeks, the vessel will be switched out with another from somewhere in the Metro. So be sure to come in and take part of this city-wide teen art project. We look forward to seeing you all.
