“Teens Take the Met!” in Free Event in NYC on October 16th

The Metropolitan Museum of Art in 5th Ave (NYC) will be transformed into a dynamic cultural open house for teens on Friday, October 16, 5:00-8:00 p.m. during Teens Take the Met!—an innovative Museum-wide event developed in partnership with more than 55 cultural and youth organizations from New York’s five boroughs.

The program encourages teens to sample diverse activities that are available to them across the City at cultural institutions large and small. The evening is free for all teens (age 13 or older) with a middle- or high-school ID, and features art making, music, performance, gallery activities, films, a dance party, and more.

Inspired by the Metropolitan’s unique and diverse collections on view in the galleries around them, as well as their ongoing work with teen audiences, the partner organizations will present different interactive experiences, often led by their own young interns, members, volunteers, or staff.

The schedule for the evening includes zine-making, live performances, teen-led gallery experiences, digital music-making, and drama and dance workshops among many other projects.

A highlight of the programming—and the culmination of a month-long collaboration involving the Met, Lincoln Center Education, and renowned visual artist Fred Wilson—will be a performance by teens of their own spoken-word poetry, inspired by representations of Africans in art through time.

Teens also will receive giveaways and information about teen activities throughout New York City. Sign language interpretation, assistive listening devices, sighted guides, large print and braille information, and a designated quiet space will be available, as will free snacks and a photo booth.

If you go: Teens can pick up their special-event wristbands at either of the Museum’s Fifth Avenue entrances—at 81st Street or 82nd Street. The wristbands will provide youth access to teen-only activities throughout the building. The event will unfold throughout the galleries, and into a teen-only dance party in the Ruth and Harold D. Uris Center for Education, where DJs will rock the crowd with music, while live projections of audience-created posts on Instagram and Twitter will cover the walls.

Não devia acontecer mas aconteceu e dizes bem, o animal estava no sitio errado, à hora errada, e especialmente com os militares errados.Então tu escondeste uma foto do Olossato de um ângulo tão original? Se puderes envia-me um anexo dessa foto, acrescentando mais algumas letras identificativas das outras instalações visiveis.Um abraço,Raul Albino
