Art Team Exhibition: Challenging Stereotypes

In the Community Commons galley on the first floor at Mia (where the studios are located), visit the exhibition Challenging Stereotypes by Art Team, on view from September 24th, 2020 – January 2021. We hope you will stop by to see these works and critically think through what stereotypes you recognize in our world that need to be challenged. Click here to learn more about this exhibition.

Update from Art Team Since August, we have started our work again supporting Family Day, developing creative opportunities for young people, and growing & connecting as a team. We will have more information about recruiting new Art Team members to our team in the spring of 2021. Due to Covid-19, we are meeting mostly virtually and a couple monthly socially distant small group in-person meetings, navigating all the realities of this time. With all this, we were not able to bring on additional members to the team this year. Thanks to all those that have inquired about this, we look forward to connecting soon. If you would like to be added to our teen programs newsletter and receive updates on Art Team recruitment and other opportunities for teens at Mia, please email cprice@artsmia.org.

Global Youth Exchange

The Global Youth Exchange (GYE) Program was envisioned as a way for Mia to foster greater cultural understanding among ten young people in Minnesota (ages 14–18) and ten young people in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam. The program, which ran from January through May 2020, was designed to offer an art-based curriculum and travel experience and then culminate in a group exhibition.
