Teen Media

Gallery Guides
The Teen Advisory Board explored the permanent collection identifying their favorite artworks and artists who made their own way in the art world. Each gallery guide highlights three pieces along with conversation starters.

Beyond the Paint Podcast
The Teen Advisory Board wrote and produced a podcast inspired by the Contemporary Muslim Fashions exhibition at the de Young. The podcast explores themes of modest fashion, individual expression, social media, and global exchange. This production won the 2019 Gold Muse at the American Alliance of Museums in the podcast category. Learn more and start listening.
