Meet the Fall 2022 Youth Curatorial Team
Benson, Tahleeya, John, Tristin, Leroy,
Jaydee, and Kaleceia of the Trolley Barn Gallery Youth Curatorial Team.
Together, the Fall 2022 team developed the theme of the “Is It Me?” International Exhibition and were a pivotal part in the jurying process.
The Youth Curatorial Team takes place over two semester-long sessions in the Fall and the Spring. Youth earn a stipend as the leaders of international juried exhibitions at the Trolley Barn Gallery, and are responsible for every aspect of exhibition curation, including theme generation, artwork selection, art handling, exhibition installation, and interpretation. The Youth Curatorial Team works closely with curators from across the country in a series of after school sessions, weekend workshops, and a variety of gallery and community events. Youth learn about project management, develop public speaking skills through gallery presentations and artist talks, and establish professional connections with international artists, curators, and arts professionals to bring impressive exhibitions of high-caliber artwork to Poughkeepsie.
“Is It Me?” will be opening Friday, March 10 with an Opening Reception from 6-8PM. Mark your calendars and get ready for an exhibition you won’t forget🎉🎉🎉
