Morris Museum Teen Council

The Morris Museum Teen Council is a free public program for students aged 14-18 residing in Richmond and Columbia counties. Each year, participants engage with local and regional art professionals to gain experience in the arts, museum-related programming, and more.

The Morris Museum of Art's 2023 Teen Council is open to teenagers interested in museum educational programming. This year's council members will serve on a planning body at the museum from September through December 2023. They will

  • work alongside museum professionals to contribute to museum programming
  • curate a museum exhibit by selecting artwork from the Morris Museum of Art's collection
  • receive an honorarium for their time served on the council (dollar amount to be determined)
  • attend weekly meetings at the museum
  • coordinate and run special programs outside of regular meeting hours

Applications are due June 1, 2023. Accepted applicants will be notified via email by July 1. Program coordinator: andrea.clark@themorris.org

2022 Teen Council

In 2022, The Morris Museum of Art's Teen Council was invited to curate an exhibition in Westobou's MICRO Gallery in downtown Augusta. Members of the Teen Council organized an open call that asked artists to respond to the topic of teen identity. The exhibition included work by 11 teen artists from 6 schools in the CSRA.

In preparation for the exhibition, the Teen Council met to discuss curating strategies and attend talks with gallerists, artists, curators, and art professionals.
