Teens take over the MCA!
Teens take over the MCA with installations, workshops, performances, videos, music, and print works by Chicago artists under 21.
The MCA’s Teen Creative Agency—25 curious, creative 15–19-year-olds from all over the Chicagoland area—present the seventh annual 21Minus. This festival of teen creativity and passion fills the museum with exciting, out-there projects that invite visitors to engage with the museum and each other in unexpected ways. 21Minus is curated and produced by TCA.
This event is free for people age 21 and under and their families.
Youth-led events highlight Chicago artists under 21 years old and are organized by Grace Needlman, Manager of Youth and Family Programs, and Ellen Chu, Coordinator of Family, Youth, School, and Teacher Programs.
