The Noguchi Museum’s Teen Advisory Board [TAB] is a year-long paid internship for 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 upcoming exhibitions A Glorious Bewilderment: Marie Menken’s ‘Visual Variations on Noguchi’ and Toshiko Takaezu: Worlds Within. TAB interns will collaborate on a final project that expresses how art can be connected to self-empowerment.
Teen Advisory Board meets on Wednesdays, 4:30–6:30 pm, at The Noguchi Museum, 9-01 33rd Road, Long Island City, NY 11106. The program runs 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.
