Teen Advisory Board

Apply by October 19

The Noguchi Museum’s Teen Advisory Board [TAB] is a paid internship for New York City public high school students. Each year, TAB interns collaborate on projects that promote dialogue and inclusivity at the Museum. This year, the 2023–24 TAB cohort will focus their conversations on promoting cultural and gender equity in the arts. Teens will learn about contemporary influences in Isamu Noguchi’s life and work, and explore artwork in the exhibitions A Glorious Bewilderment: Marie Menken’s ‘Visual Variations on Noguchiand Toshiko Takaezu: Worlds Within. TAB interns will collaborate on a final project that expresses how art can be connected to self-empowerment.

TAB meets at The Noguchi Museum on Wednesdays, 4:30–6:30 pm, from November 8, 2023 through May 8, 2024. TAB participants are paid a $750 stipend for full participation in the program, receiving $375 at the midpoint and end of the program. All materials will be provided, with the option to receive a MetroCard for transportation to the museum.

Please note that the Teen Advisory Board application requires one letter of recommendation. Your letter of recommendation must be submitted along with your application by Thursday, October 19, 2023, 11:59 pm ET. Contact education@noguchi.org if you have any questions about the program.
