The Indianapolis Museum of Art Teen Arts Council is comprised of 14 members from 10 different schools in central Indiana (read bios). All students share a common passion for art and have a variety of specializations and interest areas, including classical music, dance, graphic design, social justice and art history. Throughout the year, TAC members work with local and regional artists on engaging projects that encourage creativity, community connectivity, and self-awareness. TAC is a place where students have the ability to reintroduce themselves to the joys of failure, creative problem solving, and experiencing the unfamiliar.
The IMA Teen Arts Council invites teens to explore the power and beauty of art and community in new contexts. Council members serve as a focus group for potential future programs on the campus. They contribute teen-friendly elements to existing programs. The council is a part of an initiative to enhance the Museum’s relationship with teenage audiences.
The IMA Teen Arts Council is supported by Bob and Toni Bader and a grant from The Indianapolis Foundation, a CICF affiliate.
