For teens in grades 9–12.

This exciting new program gives high schoolers an exclusive glimpse into the inner-workings of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum. Over the course of six weeks, students have the rare opportunity to visit the galleries after hours, allowing them to become experts in the hidden life of the museum. They will explore the museum's history, collection, and 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.

Fee: $300, ($250 members). Financial assistance is available upon request. Registration required. For more information, e-mail teenprograms@guggenheim.org.

Being a Teen Volunteer is great for fulfilling community service requirements, resume-building, and college applications. Please send a resume and statement of interest to teenvolunteers@guggenheim.org. Write “Teen 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.
