Schomburg Teen Curators Program

This course will provide teen curators an opportunity to gain culturally‐relevant knowledge about art as a tool for documenting diverse narratives and histories. From September through June, teen curators will be immersed in aesthetic experiences with the Schomburg’s collections through art object study, art historical research and writing, archival presentations, living artist interviews, community programs, and hands‐on curatorial and exhibition work. Teen curators will integrate scholarly research into artistic endeavors by incorporating manuscripts, sheet music, letters, and other paper and audiovisual media into artistic and curatorial projects. Teen Curators will produce and present multimedia exhibitions at the Schomburg Center and in the community. By interviewing creative professionals, teen curators will create new primary sources (i.e., their recorded interviews) to be added to the Schomburg’s holdings for use by future artists, researchers, and curators. Teen curators will learn to work collaboratively with peers to curate and install an exhibit that will open to the public for viewing.

We Would Like to Honor the 2017 graduates of the Schomberg Program.
