On July 1, this year’s Youth Insights Summer Intensive Program began at the Whitney. Eighteen teens from around New York City met and started learning about art and arts careers both inside and outside the Museum.

In May, Youth Insights Artists were lucky enough to work closely with 2014 Biennial artist Jacolby Satterwhite. For two weeks, Satterwhite collaborated on a performance-based video project with the YI teens, then invited them to his studio to get a glimpse of his life as an artist.
