ABOUT THE PROGRAM
Teen Renaissance features selected works created by Dallas-area high school students. Curated by the DMA’s Teen Advisory Council, these works provide an inside view into the teenage experience directly from the source. Renaissance is defined as a revival or renewal. Similarly, this exhibition showcases the innovation and creative talents of an upcoming generation of artists who are inspired by their own personal histories and the art that came before them.
In the wake of a global pandemic, we’ve all experienced some sort of solitude, be it social distancing from friends or quarantining in the confines of our bedrooms. This Teen Renaissance exhibition explores how the past year has affected young people’s experience of freedom and sense of connection with one another.
Please note: Several works of art in this virtual exhibition address themes of death and mental distress.
