Teen Art Show Deadline: Teens, Inspired: Multifaceted (event)

Teens, Inspired

How do you show up in the world?

Create a work of art that draws inspiration from at least 3 works of art from the different collections on display at the NCMA.

Are you armored yet connected like El Anatsui’s “Lines that Link Humanity?”

A giant, clothlike metal sculpture with yellow and silver-gray sections separated by multicolored vertical lines.

Are you tranquil and layered, à la Monet’s “The Cliff, Etretat, Sunset?”

A painting of the sun setting behind a large rock formation in the ocean.

Are you also iconic and bold, like one of the women in Mickalene Thomas’ “Les Trois Femmes Noires?”

A colorful mixed-media painting of three Black women with rhinestone-embellished clothing and high-heeled shoes. The painting appears to be broken into many pieces, with layers of neon-colored shapes in the background.
Show us how you are multifaceted!
