The Haunted Studio: Working with Tom Thayer and Jim Jines

On October 26, 2012, with the help of artists Tom Thayer and Jim Jines, Youth Insights Leaders hosted The Haunted Studio, an evening of interactive performance and art-making in the Whitney Studio and Sculpture Court. Welcoming teen guests from across New York City, YI Leaders gave a tour of the exhibition Wade Guyton: OS then transformed into masked characters for a Bee Hive, an inclusive performance art piece that they prepared and led with Thayer and Jines. For more details on the Bee Hive and the rest of the Halloween evening, check out the Whit blog.
