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."

Experimental Study Program for Teens

This semester-long program offers teens the chance to learn about contemporary art, engage directly with artists, and participate in intimate, critical discussions about culture.


The New Museum's mission is to promote New Art and New Ideas. The Global Classroom (G:Class) utilizes the Museum as a resource to enhance learning and engage high school students through the exploration of contemporary art connecting to local, global, and cultural issues that affect their lives.
