The Walker Art Center Teen Arts Council has a sweet new website.

The Walker Art Center was the first art museum in the country to devote full-time staff (Christi and Witt) to working with and building teen audiences. Since 1994, Walker Teen Programs has been connecting kids to art and artists. Past workshops have brought in Barry McGee, Julie Mehretu, Harrell Fletcher, Shepherd Fairey, Sam Durant, Glenn Ligon, Robin Rhode and Cheryl Dunye. WACTAC also puts on teen art exhibitions. They have five-week workshops with sound artists that result in sick A/V battles. They collaborate on amazing events like Brother and Sister's (!) March of Madness, an all-day secret battle of the bands and scavenger hunt. If you've got a teenager anywhere near Minneapolis, you should get them involved.

  1. Thanks for the kind words and link. Justin Heideman, Walker new media designer (and orchestrator of the A/V battle mentioned in your post), did an incredible job. We love our new site! Check back for everything "teen" in the Twin Cities. - Witt
