NexGen empowers young adults ages 14-18 to create and cultivate artistic experiences in response to The Mint Museum’s engaging collection and exciting special exhibitions. The program responds to focus group NexGen’s expressed desire to be part of the museum and learn more about art, museum careers, and the creative process from inspiring artists.
Beginning with the 2023-24 school year, the Mint is partnering with local board-certified art therapists to host the Expressive Arts Open Studio as part of the NexGen Mint program. Utilizing the galleries and exhibitions as inspiration prior to each session, NexGen members will have the opportunity to explore a variety of art materials, various themes, personal identity, and learn more about the benefits of art making and one’s own well-being.
