Art Team

Art Team is a collective of teen staff members who help create and host public events at Mia, including Rated T and Family Days.

We are a group of 8-10 young Mia staff members that work as a team to create opportunities for young people, support Family Day and create community & grow together.
In the Community Commons galley on the first floor at Mia (where the studios are located), visit the exhibition Challenging Stereotypes by Art Team, 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.
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.
