Open Call for Teens with Ideas

The PMA is growing. As the museum evolves into a truly 21st-century institution, we want to hear from as many voices as we can—and no voices are more important to us than those who actually grew up in the 21st century. If you are between the ages of 14 and 18, we'd like to hear from you. It doesn't matter if you enjoy art, music, skateboarding, sports, or video games. It doesn't even matter what your grades are like. If you grew up on Nickelodeon, we want to know what you think.
