On View at Pump Project
The Contemporary Austin is proud to present Special Blend, the culminating group exhibition of the museum’s Teen Artist + Mentor Program. Collaboration is the foundation of this community arts initiative, in which ten professional artist-mentors are paired with ten exemplary high school students from the Austin area. Together, they meet for seven months in the artist’s studio space to create new work. Hours of conversation, exploration of artistic mediums, and field trips to creative venues around Austin weave together in the final exhibition of collaborative work from all twenty artists.
The Teen Artist + Mentor Program is committed to providing opportunities to students who have limited access to arts resources. The Contemporary Austin values the importance of arts education and offers this program free of cost. Special thanks to our artist-mentors, the students’ families and teachers, and Pump Project for their dedication and support.
