MCA DENVER TEEN ART SHOW 2020

The Museum of Contemporary Art Denver’s Teen Program: Failure Lab invites teens in Colorado, currently enrolled in high school to submit 2D/3D/Time-based artwork for a juried exhibition at MCA Denver.

PROMPT FOR SUBMISSIONS

As teenagers, we find ourselves stuck between childhood and adulthood. We are thrown into adult spaces and situations but are often only given the autonomy of a child. How do we balance the whirlwind of high expectations with the vibrant moments of teenage life? Submit a work of art that explores the complex relationship between working hard and not taking things too seriously. You can only submit one piece, so send us your best. All artwork will be juried by Failure Lab.

EXTENDED DEADLINE TO SUBMIT ART April 15, 2020 

 

TIMELINE TBD
