Youth Insights Artists programs bring teens together with contemporary artists, providing opportunities to work collaboratively, discuss art critically, and think creatively. YI Artists make art inspired by this exchange. 

Open to: New York City high school students, grades 9–12. 

Applications are due Thursday, September 12, 2019 at 11:59 pm


New York City teens are invited to a collaborative art-making workshop with 2019 Biennial artist Robert Bittenbender. In his work, Bittenbender draws equal inspiration from traditional art materials such as paint and graphite as he does from cheap, found objects and detritus picked up off the street. He combines these materials to create improvisational assemblages.

Join Bittenbender for collaborative assemblage-making using velcro, plastic toys, and other found objects. Art supplies and refreshments will be provided—everyone is welcome.

Free for teens. Upon entering the Museum, pick up a ticket in the lobby.
