Like the rest of the world, these Teen Council members faced the rapid shift to quarantine in the middle of the school year. During a global pandemic and widespread uncertainty the Teen Council has continued to meet, plan, and connect—all in a virtual space.

Turn On, Tune In, Tap Out
On view through August 8, 2021
Contemporary Arts Museum Houston (CAMH)
Organized by CAMH’s Teen Council, the group exhibition features work by twenty-six Houston-area teen artists. The exhibition addresses the world’s rapid shift into a virtual space where learning and interactions with others occurred almost exclusively through a digital screen.
