Not only did Contemporary Arts Museum Houston (CAMH) Director Bill Arning give a bunch of shout outs to Houston artists (Nathaniel Donnett,Trenton Doyle Hancock, Autumn Knight, Jamal Cyrus and Phillip Pyle the Second, among others) in his recent Art in America article, “Houston Loves Eccentrics” (print only: buy the magazine), the New York Times ran an article this morning (May 17) on the wonders of the CAMH’s Teen Council (TC).
The article, “Houston’s Young Curators Look at Culture and Environment,” looks at their curation of “Root Shift: Photographs of Stasis and Change” at the Menil Collection and interviews TC Director Jamal Cyrus and a couple of the twelve TC members. The CAMH’s Teen Council has received national attention recently for its participation in a published study of similar programs (with the Whitney, the Walker, and LA MOCA) entitled “Room to Rise: The Lasting Impact of Intensive Teen Programs in Art Museums.”
