Our new teen exhibition QUANTUM, features new and in-progress work across media by teens from the Art Center’s after-school virtual programs made during the 2020-2021 academic year.

The exhibition includes work at different points of development as a way to define artistic practice as something that is always evolving. The exhibition’s title, QUANTUM, selected by the Youth Board of Artists, speaks to an energy that is always moving and ever-changing as it interacts with its environment, much like the way teen artists see their practices grow and evolve through dialog with each other and the Art Center’s community. Check out this amazing work curated by teens and designed to encourage audience members to share feedback in a format that is similar to how teen artists critique each other in their classes. 

Featured Artists in QUANTUM: Amanda Baity, Emily Baity, Cobe Blackmond, Doloriae Daniels, Darius Donald, Joy Fowler, Kyli Hawks, Shelby Holloway, Abigail Huang, Amirah Ibrahim, Jamar Jackson, Amir Johnson, Madison Grant, Stevia Ndoe, Tzoe Rivera, Saffiyah Sackor, Bianca Sligh, Kimora Wright, and Alyssia Zepeda.
