Teen Museum Studies Exhibition Opportunity

An essential part of Teen Museum Studies is the involvement of local artists. We seek proposals for an exhibition in CAM’s Education Galleries, which will be organized by Teen Museum Studies students each summer. The artist selected receives a $1,000 stipend, and their exhibition is part of CAM’s season opening in the fall.

We care deeply about serving our community and continue to provide quality education programs within safe learning environments. With safety as our priority, we are prepared to offer Teen Museum Studies remotely and/or on-site, depending on the evolving concerns for public health during the summer.
