Professional Development Seminar

Join us on Tuesday, November 3, for a professional development seminar for high school teachers that will address the New Museum’s Fall 2015 R&D (Research and Development) Season theme of PERSONA. This Season considers the ways and means by which we craft and present ourselves to others, while exploring the roles that the media, celebrity culture, politics, theater, and art play across the spectrum of subjecthood from “self” to “character."

Teen Apprentices Reflect on the Temporary Center for Translation

Summer Teen Apprentice Program

The New Museum Teen Apprentice Program offers students aged 16-19 work experience and exposure to contemporary art and ideas through on the job training, career-development workshops and talks, field trips to relevant arts institutions, and group projects.
