Students will have the rare opportunity to visit the galleries after hours, allowing them to become experts in the hidden life of the museum. This exciting new program is designed to give high schoolers an exclusive glimpse into the inner workings of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Over the course of five weeks, students will explore the museum's history and collection as well as the development of its special exhibitions. Through brief lectures, close looking, and group discussion, students will gain an understanding of how both a permanent collection and a special exhibition come into being at this unique institution.

For teens in grades 9–12.

Fee: $200, ($150 members). Financial assistance is available upon request. Registration required. For more information, e-mail teenprograms@guggenheim.org.

We are looking for energetic, outgoing, and articulate high school students to volunteer on weekends. Guggenheim Teen Volunteers assist adult staff and volunteers in our weekend Family Programs. Assignments include being a liaison for families in the lobby at our Family Programs Kiosk and facilitating gallery activities in our Just Drop In! programs.

Being a Teen Volunteer is great for fulfilling community service requirements, resume-building, and college applications. Please send a statement of interest to familyprograms@guggenheim.org, and write “Weekend Volunteer” in the subject line.

The Guggenheim invites teens to spend an evening exploring the exhibitions on view and enjoying music and refreshments. The most recent Teen Night was held in conjunction with Carrie Mae Weems’ weekend event, Carrie Mae Weems LIVE. Teens were invited to meet Weems' friend and fellow artist Carl Hancock Rux, followed by collaborative art making and refreshments.
