The New Museum Teen Internship Program runs for six weeks each summer and offers work experience and exposure to contemporary art to local teens. In addition to artist-led workshops, trips, and career-development talks, teens get the chance to work alongside guards in the New Museum's galleries. While in the galleries this summer, intern Joyce Chen developed a deep connection to Llyn Foulkes' "Pop."
As part of the series of artist-led workshops offered to the summer 2013 New Museum Teen Interns, Charles Simonds spoke about his practice. Intern Pamela Stoicev was moved by the conversation, and shares her thoughts about Simonds' dedication to making art in public places.
