• AK Teens: Future Curators is a weekly after-school program for high school students in grades eleven and twelve. During the course of the program, students learn about the behind-the-scenes work of a museum curator and organize an exhibition of artwork by young local artists. Under the guidance of the Gallery’s Education department, students work with various staff members to prepare their exhibition. Participants are involved in every step of the process, including selecting artwork from a pool of submissions, writing interpretive text, organizing the exhibition’s layout, and planning an opening reception.
